Moving Prevention Forward

  • Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD) represents a significant global health concern affecting up to 41% of nursing home residents and 35% of all patients in acute care settings. 1,2

    Twenty international experts gathered to review knowledge gaps related to IAD and to advance best practice principles that address these gaps.

    For clinicians delivering hands-on patient care, these best practice principles provide practical guidance on how to assess and manage — even prevent — IAD. 

    For facility leaders, there is a step-by-step guide for IAD prevention, plus suggestions for developing a structured IAD-prevention program in their care settings.
