Proceedings of the Global Iad expert Panel. Incontinenceassociated dermatitis: moving prevention forward. (Sv=Inkontinensrelaterad dermatit.) 

Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) (Sv. Inkontinensrelaterad dermatit) represents a significant health challenge worldwide and is a well-recognised risk factor for pressure ulcer development. Recent consensus work has identified gaps in our current understanding and practice. The ability of clinicians to deliver evidence-based practice is hampered by lack of standardised definitions and terminology, high-quality studies, and international or national guidelines.
