Paracetamol for paediatric pain

CPD hours:

Paracetamol can be an effective analgesic for mild to moderate pain and when used correctly has minimal side effects. As a first line agent for managing pain in children it is important for all nurses and anyone providing care to children to understand the indications for use, correct dosing, contraindications and any potential adverse effects.

This paediatric nursing module provides an update on the use of paracetamol to treat mild to moderate pain in paediatrics.

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.
