The hand is an amazingly complex and intricate instrument. As a primary means
by which people manipulate things in the environment the hand and upper limb
are prone to damage and injury. Function follows form. As such any underlying
pathology of the hand or injury can have a major impact on a person’s ability to
interact within their environment or to engage in their occupations of choice.
This paper offers physiotherapy and occupational therapy practitioners the
opportunity to explore a wide range of hand and upper limb problems and to
learn from expert clinicians and each other how to assess and manage some of
the common hand injuries and impairments.
The paper is a full year enrollment and runs through semesters one and two. In
2018 this begins on the 5th March. There are three on-campus weekends when you will need to come to Auckland. Dates for 2018 are 19-21st April, 4-8th July, and 27-30th September. In between these on-site block courses you study
extra-murally with readings, online discussion and assignment preparation.
We are happy to announce our initial workshops for 2018.
Our basic and advanced workshops will run as usual alongside the HAUL
programme. These workshops are open to everyone and you do not need to
be enrolled in the programme to take part.
The “Taste of Splinting” is designed for junior therapists working in
hospitals who would like to learn more about splinting and perhaps
become hand therapists of the future.
There will also be a Neuro Splinting 2 day weekend course. The date is
to be confirmed. Further workshops are also planned and will be
confirmed in the New Year.
