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 NZ
registered 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.
In 2019 this begins on the 4th March. There are three on-campus weekends when you will need to come to Auckland. Dates for 2019 are:
Block One: 11th to 14th April

In between these on site block courses you study by distance with readings, online discussion and assignment preparation.
