1. Distinguishing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome From Child Abuse Fatalities (AAP Policy)

Articles hit the news on February 5, 2001 regarding 'AAP RECOMMENDS ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES IN DETERMINING CAUSE OF SUDDEN INFANT DEATH'. The news refers to a new AAP Policy Statement developed by the AAP Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect, which is concerned with issues relating to physical, sexual, and mental abuse and neglect of children, adolescents, and their families. The Committee develops appropriate policy recommendations for consideration by the Board of Directors and state legislators and serves as a liaison with other organizations concerned with the health and well-being of children and their families. More information follows. We have received many e-mail messages asking for more information. We need to help people separate myth from fact and risk factor from cause. We will post information as it becomes available to us.

Please keep the following in mind:

- When it comes to media coverage of SIDS, we often feel a sense of frustration in being confronted with misleading headlines, announcements of so-called breakthroughs and statements taken out of context.

- Please read the article, "Mass Media's" Role in SIDS Education, at <http://sids-network.org/media.htm>.

The AAP Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect's newest Policy is an update to two previous policies from the same committee:

bullet Distinguishing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome From Child Abuse Fatalities (February 2001)
bullet Investigation and Review of Unexpected Infant and Child Deaths (November 1999)
bullet Distinguishing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome From Child Abuse Fatalities (July 1994)

- Other recent related information on Day Care Owner Liable In SIDS Death, Abuse vs. SIDS, and dozens of similar topics can be found at:
http://sids-network.org/experts.htm

We are currently gathering more information about this specific case and will keep you updated.
