Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Moisture lesions or incontinence-associated dermatitis are painful and distressing consequences of prolonged exposure to urine and faeces. They may adversely affect patients' physical and psychological wellbeing, so minimising damage is a vital part of the nurse's role. This article outlines their causes and strategies to prevent and treat them, as well as the causes of urinary and faecal incontinence and containment options.
