Training Emergency Responders: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. An Instructor's Manual.
Applied Science Associates, Inc., Reston, VA.
This manual was developed to help instructors train police and emergency medical technicians, who often are the first persons to arrive at the scene of a death (first responders), to serve families who lose a child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The manual begins with an introduction that discusses the purpose of the training and overviews the course. Next, lesson plans for a care course and two subunits are presented and each plan, in a three-column format, includes the following: the suggested time allotment for each part of the course, descriptions of instructional events and course content, and questions or problems for student discussion. The one-and-one-half-hour core course, focusing on basic content (e.g., possible parental reactions and responsibilities of the first responder), includes a handout, a film, and case studies. The two one-hour subunits, on, respectively, the participation of SIDS parent and SIDS versus child abuse and neglect, include some or all of the following: guest speakers suggestions, a handout, lecture, class discussion, and case study. A discussion on administering the course concludes this instructor's manual. The appendix, comprising two-thirds of this document, includes the following: handouts, case studies, film content, a list of 1978 SIDS information and counseling projects, and a bibliography. (EM)
