Pressure Injury & Incontinence Associated Dermatitis
Join us for this webinar with Wendy White to discuss pressure injury and incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD) differentiation, and overview the challenges faced in particular for aging populations in a variety of healthcare settings. Misdiagnosis can lead to incorrect care pathways, negatively impacting the lives lived, clinical and fiscal outcomes. IAD labelled as a pressure injury influences reportable quality indicator data, and pressure injury risk can be increased in the presence of IAD. This presentation will highlight the importance of ‘getting this right’ and provide practical guidance for clinical differentiation.
