The National SUDI Prevention Coordination Service (SPCS) is a key part of the wider National SUDI Prevention Programme (NSPP). The role of Hāpai for the SPCS will be to provide leadership, oversight, monitoring, guidance, and resources to both the four Regional SUDI Coordinators and 20 DHBs to ensure that:
- Regional initiatives funded and supported by DHBs are consistent with current and emerging scientific evidence about how to most effectively reduce the incidence of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infants
- DHBs and maternal and child service providers are guided by high quality, evidence-based expertise about how to improve the quality, availability, and consistency of SUDI Prevention messaging and interventions
- SUDI prevention messaging is nationally consistent and effective;
- Risk assessment is nationally consistent
- There is a demonstrable improvement in parental SUDI prevention health literacy and infant care practice, and infant exposure to SUDI risk is reduced.
The development and implementation of the SPCS are centered around the following key components:
- Provider planning and finalisation of service requirements
- Support and coordination of regional SUDI prevention activities
- National-level improvement activities
- Support to explore future improvement options
- Strategic planning, performance evaluation, and monitoring
