Abstract [en]

Moisture-associated skin damage, especially incontinence-associated dermatitis, continues to present significant health challenges and requires multidisciplinary input to provide effective prevention and treatment. In the absence of mandatory reporting such damage is under- or wrongfully reported, resulting in a lack of accurate data on prevalence and costs of associated care. In March this year, a multidisciplinary team of experts met in the UK to seek to determine measures to improve patient skin care. They aimed to identify activities to increase awareness and education, collect data, and improve prevention and treatment regimes. This article describes that discussion and the conclusions made by the group, such as the key actions required to effect policy changes.
