Are You Interested in Hand Therapy Training?
Hand and Upper Limb Therapy Paper 2019 - AUT
What is the basic idea behind the paper?
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.
When will the paper run?
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

Block three: 26th to 29th September
In between these on site block courses you study by distance with readings, online discussion and assignment preparation.
