Alzheimer's disease explained

CPD hours:

Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia in Australia.

This module explores the incidence of Alzheimer's disease.

It goes on to discuss the pathophysiology of the disease and the signs and symptoms that distinguish it from other forms of dementia.

It then explains the typical progression of the disease and the principles of care for a person with the disease.

This module is aimed at anyone providing care to a person with Alzheimer's disease.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
