Managing difficult or challenging behaviours in primary healthcare

CPD hours:

This module describes difficult and challenging behaviours commonly exhibited by clients and/or their families or friends in primary healthcare settings. It discusses how best to respond to these behaviours and the most effective ways to manage incidents.

It provides step-by-step guidance to defusing tension and prevent the escalation of an incident, with examples of practical interventions that could be applied in a variety of circumstances.

This module is limited to the conduct of clients and family/friends in primary healthcare and the scope of this module does not extend to difficult or challenging behaviours of colleagues or situations encountered in other healthcare settings.

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.
