Incontinence Associated Dermatitis
Due to an aging population, there are increasing instances of IAD1. Those who have IAD are 10 times more likely to develop a pressure ulcer2.

Studies have indicated that the use of wipes helps to prevent IAD3, reduce time involved in washing patients4, improve patient care5 and decrease overall cost associated with pressure ulcers6. 3M want to help stop IAD, and have organised a series of roadshows to help educate Health Care Professionals and improve patient care.
