progress in multiple the treatment of fecal and urinary incontinence,
absorptive products remain an important and frequently used option in the
care of these individuals.
Nevertheless, evidence concerning these products is limited and best
practice guidelines are sparse. This
session will focus on the latest research and clinical evidence related to
the design and selection of body worn absorptive products, and their proper
use. We will discuss their use in community dwelling persons, homebound
persons, long-term care residents, and patients in acute and acritical care
setting. We will also summarize
current best evidence concerning the effect of absorptive products on the
skin’s moisture barrier and their role in the prevention of incontinence
associated dermatitis and their interactions with pressure redistributing
support surface.
