Hāpai supports new SUDI prevention resources

The Hāpai Te Hauora SUDI (Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy) Prevention Coordination Service supports the release by the Ministry of the Health of the National SUDI Prevention Programme: Needs Assessment and Care Planning Guide and the National Safe Sleep Device Quality Specification Guidelines. These resources are interconnected to a broader National SUDI Prevention Programme which seeks to significantly reduce the rates of New Zealand babies passing away of SUDI.

"As Māori and Pacific babies are most impacted by SUDI, it is important that our systems are receptive and understand the needs of our populations. Engaging with whānau in a culturally safe manner and having increased access to Māori derived health solutions such as wahakura are steps to reducing the health inequities we experience in Aotearoa. These resources provide some tools and processes towards addressing these" says Fay Selby-Law, General Manager NSPCS (National SUDI Prevention Coordination Service).

"The NSPCS has been working towards capturing insights of SUDI prevention with experts and advocates within the workforce as well as community. Online training modules have been created to sit alongside the new Ministry of Health documents. The training has prioritised key tools to support health professionals with best practice SUDI prevention messaging as well as effective ways to engage with whānau" says Nari Faiers, Workforce Development Lead.

Our service welcomes these resources as they provide tools for the workforce and community sectors to contribute to the overall goal of reducing the SUDI incidence across New Zealand.

The latest guidelines for SUDI Prevention are available on the Ministry’s website:
