Objective: To build and validate algorithms for prevention and treatment of incontinence-associated dermatitis. Method: A methodological study. An integrative review of articles published from 2009 to 2019 was carried out after a literature search in the main Health Sciences databases for the construction of the algorithms. The algorithms were evaluated by 27 nurses using the Delphi technique. The content validity index was used for data analysis. Results: The judges evaluated the algorithms from inadequate to adequate in the first round of consultation, and from adequate to totally adequate in the second round of consultation. The global content validity index was 0.923 in the first consultation and 1.0 in the second consultation. Conclusion: After reviewing the literature, the algorithms were constructed and validated by professionals with experience in the area, reaching agreement among the judges in the second round of consultation.
