Incontinence Associated Dermatitis (IAD) is a common condition and significant health challenge that causes patients pain, discomfort and is a risk factor for the development of pressure ulcers. 3M brought together 20 global experts to review knowledge deficits in IAD and to advance best practice principles to address these gaps. From that meeting, the Best Practice Principles-Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis: Moving Prevention Forward document was developed in collaboration with Wounds International.
For clinicians providing hands-on care, this document provides practical guidance on how to assess, prevent and manage IAD. For clinical leaders, a step-by-step guide for advancing IAD prevention within their care setting is shared, in addition to information on developing a structured prevention program. For information on the document or to access a free download, please visit or contact your local 3M Health Care Representative at 1-800-228-3957.
