Basic wound management

CPD hours:

Nurses take a leading role in the assessment and management of wounds in any healthcare setting. Individualised care plans are required to optimize healing, however, the basic principles of wound care are applied in all approaches to wound care.

This wound management course is intended as a brief refresher for all nurses and assistants in nursing. It discusses the principles of wound care: collaborative approach to care; comprehensive patient assessment; care planning; wound cleansing; appropriate selection and implementation of a wound management technique; and detailed documentation.

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.
