DOSE (Direct On Scene Education)

Accidental suffocation/strangulation in bed (unsafe sleep) is a leading cause of death for Indiana’s infants. As a first responder, you have a unique opportunity to help prevent these deaths. Direct On-Scene Education (DOSE) is an innovative program aimed at eliminating sleep-related infant death due to suffocation, strangulation or positional asphyxia by using first responders to identify and remove hazards while delivering education on scene during emergency and non-emergency runs.

Verbal education is the key to behavior change in the field. The community knows first responders are on-scene to help, which gives your message a greater opportunity to make a lasting impression. And it’s working! Since implementing DOSE in 2012, Capt. Carroll has seen the number of infant deaths in his Broward County service area go from the highest to the lowest. “Each safe sleep kit is an opportunity to save a life,” says Carroll. “We want to get the number of deaths to zero.”

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is offering offering a Train-the-Trainer program to first responders – firefighters, EMS and law enforcement – to teach you how to provide a primary prevention program in your jurisdiction aimed at lowering Indiana’s infant mortality rate and preventing infant deaths due to an unsafe sleep environment. This is not your typical SIDS training. It takes what you already know and shows you how to engage the community and educate families and caregivers about how to ensure their infant has a safe place to sleep.

 

The IDHS will be providing training manuals and program materials tailored to your community’s needs.
