Description

Nurses are not allowed to diagnose, but are expected to know the most likely etiology of skin breakdown and then choose an appropriate care plan. The buttock area poses a particular challenge due to the difficulty of differentiating between skin injuries due to pressure, friction or moisture.

During this 2-hour webinar, you will be introduced to a system that can greatly simplify the process of differentiating pressure ulcers and moisture-associated skin damage (MASD - also known as maceration), such as incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD). By clarifying the definition of pressure ulcers and using a new IAD assessment tool, buttock skin injuries will be more accurately named.
