Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD) can be a serious challenge in acute and long-term care settings. Successful protection — and prevention — begins with a clear understanding of how to identify and address the needs of at-risk patients.
What does IAD look like? How can you distinguish IAD from pressure ulcers or injuries? How do you assess and address the challenges associated with this condition? Our free IAD Identification Guide — a companion to the Best Practice Principles consensus document, Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis: Moving Prevention Forward — has the answers to these and other important questions.
