Session Description: It has been 10 years since a meeting in Chicago resulted in the term Incontinence Associated Dermatitis (IAD) and its first related consensus document. The WOCN Society and Sage Products invite you to join Mikel Gray and Denise Nix for a webinar as they explore the evolution of IAD prevention and management from hygienic task to critical intervention bundles for patient safety. This webinar will present current best evidence and best practices for assessment, prevention and management of IAD in the critical care setting. Whether you are a critical care nurse or WOC nurse who consults in the ICU, the information in this webinar will inform your efforts at both IAD and pressure ulcer prevention in the context of moisture management.
Objectives: At the end of this webinar, the participants will be able to:
Review the etiology, causes and epidemiology of IAD in the critical care unit.
Discuss the natural history of IAD in the acute and critical care settings and its relationship to pressure ulcer risk.
Identify strategies to prevent IAD in the critical care unit, and its incorporation into preventive care bundles for hospital acquired pressure ulcers and catheter associated urinary tract infection.
Outline strategies for managing IAD in the critical are unit, including strategies for containing urinary and fecal incontinence.
This webinar is supported by an educational grant from Sage Products. The WOCN Society does not endorse specific products or services.
