Medications: what are the risks?

Medication errors are the most commonly reported clinical incident in many healthcare settings.


This module is part of a series on medication safety. It provides a review of the basic mathematics required for anyone performing drug calculations.

  • Not everyone will need to do this module.
  • However, for those who wish to review how to calculate fractions and decimals, how to do division and multiplication, and how to write numbers correctly, it will prove to be a valuable resource.


This module is consistent with the Australian National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards, Standard Four: Medication Safety.

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.

At the end of this module participants will be able to:

  • Convert fractions to decimals and vice versa.
  • Do simple multiplications.
  • Convert metric units.
  • Perform division of numbers.
  • Write numbers correctly.

At the end of this module participants will be able to:
