Jun 24, 2014 6:30am ‐ Jun 24, 2014 8:00am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

Moisture-associated skin damage (MASD), and in particular incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), continues to pose challenges for the bedside clinician and can increase the risk of other skin impairments such as pressure ulcer formation. This symposia will describe the etiology of MASD and IAD, and describe characteristics that may assist staff in distinguishing between IAD and pressure ulcers and discuss the impact on skin health. The panel will also discuss the benefit of CHG bathing and the impact that this practice has on the prevention of IAD. Finally, the symposia will also describe how evidence can be successfully implemented in clinical practice by reviewing the successes of a large acute care facility.
