The skin is a complex organ system. It acts as a barrier to injury and infection. A thorough knowledge of how skin damage is caused, how to prevent skin damage and how to assess for damage is required for all nurses and assistants in nursing who provide providing direct patient care.

This module discusses how skin damage is caused, how to prevent skin damage and how to identify skin damage.

This module assumes prior knowledge of the anatomy of the skin.

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.
