This is Webinar #2 in a three-part series on safe infant sleep entitled “Systems for Safe Sleep: Purposefully Building Programs for Effective Public Health Partnerships.”

 

This series explores the topic through the lens of the Multi-Sectoral Influences Matrix (M-SIM), a tool that helps broadly scope programs and meaningfully engage the full spectrum of partners and perspectives that are affected by an intervention. The series is presented by the Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network and the Safe States Alliance.

 

In Webinar #2, “A Public Health Approach to Safe Sleep: Implementing and Evaluating a Multi-Level Program,” presenters discuss Tennessee’s approach to safe sleep and provide ideas on how to apply their approach at the community level. Tennessee has had a great deal of success with its safe infant sleep programming, and has worked with hospitals, parents, providers, and the business community to implement a multi-faceted prevention campaign that has shown positive results. Importantly, these results are known because each arm of the program has included an evaluation that captures what and how the work was done, as well as its impact.
