Description

This session will examine innovative strategies for nursing care of the inflammatory skin damage resulting from incontinence. Participants will learn about a new instrument for assessing incontinence associated skin damage (IASD) on light to dark skin. They will review risk factors for IASD including the role of skin pH and apply that knowledge to guide prevention. The high risk group of older nursing home residents will be used as an exemplar.
