Med safe - Medication calculations explained

CPD hours:
2

Medications calculations are a foundation skill for all nurses and midwives. It is essential that skills in medication calculations are continually reviewed and updated.

This module provides a useful revision of medication calculations. It reinforces medication calculations and uses quiz questions throughout to reinforce learning.

Not everyone will need to do this module, however, for those who wish to revise how to perform medication calculations, this module will 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.
