Infant Sleep eLearning Program

Sleep problems affect more than a third of infants—health professionals can now learn how to support families in managing this common challenge with the new Infant Sleep eLearning Program.
The Centre for Community Child Health at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute has led a decade of infant sleep research and found techniques that are safe and effective to use in babies aged 6-18 months.
This program will teach you two techniques and how to manage common problems such as night feeds and dummies. It provides fact sheets in eight languages to support you and the families you work with during these often challenging times.
This program is accredited for 2 Royal Australian College of General Practitioners points: Number 908.
The Infant Sleep eLearning Program was developed by infant sleep experts at the Centre for Community Child Health with the support of the Sleep Health Foundation and Gandel Philanthropy.
Duration: Approximately one hour
Cost: $50
