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
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
