Carbapenemase producing Klebsiella pneumoniae: An overview

CPD hours:

Klebsiella pneumoniae is responsible for a number of community and hospital-acquired infections. It can produce carbapenemase, an enzyme responsible for multidrug resistance and carbapenemase-positive bacterial infections have been documented throughout the world.

The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance has challenged all areas of health service delivery. Greater adherence to microbial surveillance and infection control measures are required to prevent further harm and nurses are at the forefront of preventative measures.

This module provides a brief overview of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae. It will be of interest to anyone involved in healthcare and who is involved in microbial surveillance or infection control.

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.
