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 enrolment and runs through semesters one and two. In
2017 this begins on the 6th March. There are three on-campus weekends when
you will need to come to Auckland. Dates for 2017 are 6-9th April, 5-9th July and
20th -23rd September. In between these on-site block courses you study
extramurally with readings, online discussion and assignment preparation.
