Centering Community Voices: Solutions to Safe Sleep and Breastfeeding Using a Quality Improvement Framework

While sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) and breastfeeding are public health issues across population groups, significant disparities exist across race, ethnicity, and geography. To center the lived experiences of communities, many MCH programs are shifting to community-driven work to promote safe sleep and breastfeeding, including the National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep Improvement and Innovation Network (NAPPSS-IIN).

This webinar will discuss how the NAPPSS-IIN programmatic and evaluation pursuits shifted to center community voices within participatory quality improvement (QI). Community partners will share their experiences leading and implementing QI activities. Implications for MCH projects and community-based research will be discussed.
