    Hi Sparky, We are looking to trial some creams/ointments for the prevention of diaper dermatitis in our unit but I need to obtain a validated skin assessment tool so the skin condition can be assessed. I know of the Neonatal skin condition scale used by AWHONN/NANN but wondered if there were any others been used in other units. Any help will be much appreciated as I have never conducted research before. I was brought up on old fashioned ritualistic practises!!!!! Corks
