Palliative care: Identifying needs – An introduction

CPD hours:

Palliative care aims to assist in optimising the quality of life for individuals with a life-limiting illness.

Research has demonstrated that individuals benefit most when palliative care in introduced as early as possible, as part of a multi-team approach.

This module is brief and has been developed with a broad focus for all those involved in the nursing care of individuals who may benefit from palliative care.

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!

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.
