Welcome to PuClas3!

PuClas3 aims to further support clinical teaching and learning about pressure ulcer classification and incontinence- associated dermatitis (IAD) differentiation. It has been developed as an answer for the ongoing major difficulties experienced by healthcare professionals when classifying pressure ulcers and making a distinction between pressure ulcers and skin lesions caused by urinary and fecal incontinence. The scientific content is based on the EPUAP position statement on pressure ulcer classification and IAD differentiation, and provides an overview of causative factors and of typical wound-related characteristics.

The newly developed PuClas3 tool includes an update of the classification system according to the latest international guideline, an updated terminology for IAD, high quality photographs, assessment modules and separate modules about basic principles on pressure ulcers and IAD.
