Moisture-Associated Skin Damage (MASD)

Moisture-associated Skin Damage (MASD), as the name suggests, occurs when exposure to a moisture source results in a breakdown of skin integrity. MASD is an umbrella term for a number of conditions including incontinence-associated dermatitis, peri-stomal skin damage, peri-wound skin damage and intertrigo. These conditions can impact greatly on patients so protecting the skin from damage and promoting wound healing are integral parts of skin and wound care. This area contains a variety of different resources to help aid understanding of MASD, so please sign up to our events, and explore to learn more!
