Patient blood management in perioperative settings

CPD hours:

This module discusses the application of the three pillars of patient blood management (PBM) to minimise patient exposure to the three key risk factors for adverse postoperative outcomes.

It is based on individualised assessment, identification, and treatment of issues across all phases of the perioperative period.

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.
