Med safe: A step-by-step calculations guide and assessment

CPD hours:

This module provides a series of medication questions, the steps to calculating the correct answer and an opportunity to practice each one. It uses the National Inpatient Medication Charts (NIMC) (adults and paediatrics) as the basis for learning.

This module is designed to support nurses and midwives in refreshing their knowledge of medication calculations.

There are a total of 15 questions in this module. You have two attempts to get each question correct. The pass mark is 100%.

National Standard
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.
