Covid-19 is no opportunity for hasty research

Read the story here.

Snapshot of the story

Two of the worlds’ leading medical journals Lancet and NEJM, have expressed concern about the accuracy of a few studies that have been published, in haste, over recent months - these papers have been retracted since. We are all living in the fast track lane, trying to get ahead and without the barriers that delay research, regulation, and market entry for our healthcare products and services. While Covid-19 has been a major driver to accelerating market pathways and diminishing market-entry barriers, we must continue to proceed with caution. While the pandemic presents certain opportunities there is not a more important time to ensure that whatever is marketed and accessible to patients is evidence-informed, safe, ethical, etc.

What’s a Rich Text element?

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.
