Safe Sleep Research Project - Provider Survey to improve recommendations for parents

To better guide providers in counseling the parents of infants about safe sleep, and share key resources with parents, a short survey was developed to allow an evaluation of what factors influence how pediatricians, family practitioners and advanced-practice providers discuss this topic with their patients’ families.

Participation is voluntary and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. There are no direct benefits to being in this study. One risk would be loss of confidentiality, but this will be minimized as the investigators will not be able to see the e-mail address of anyone responding. Please do not provide identifying information in your responses. The survey content could be distressing to individuals with personal or professional experience with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or Sudden Unexplained Infant Death (SUID).

This study was approved by the Maine Medical Center Institutional Review Board. For questions, contact the MaineHealth Institutional Review Board at (207) 661-4474. Please click on the following link to complete the survey:  https://collaborate.tuftsctsi. org/redcap/surveys/?s= 8TM7X43JC
