Please see below: Announcing IFSHT Publication: R.E.A.C.H., September 2021

R.E.A.C.H. Volume 1, No. 2 - September 2021

IFSHT is pleased to announce Volume 1, No. 2 of our new publication, R.E.A.C.H.: Research, Education, Achievement and Clinicians in Hand and Upper limb therapy around the world!

R.E.A.C.H. was born out of an IFSHT Executive Committee brainstorming session in London in February 2020. With plans underway for the new IFSHT website, the Executive Committee decided to consolidate the IFSHT Update and the Hand Therapy Connections Newsletter into a new publication called R.E.A.C.H.

Our deepest thanks once again go out to our Information Officer, Susan De Klerk (South Africa) and her highly skilled and dedicated Publication Committee: Daniel Harte (Ireland), Toni Rippey (New Zealand), Mia Erickson (USA) and Tsitsi Morove (Zimbabwe). This amazing team has developed an informative and beautiful digital newsletter for hand therapists throughout the world to enjoy.

To access the September 2021 edition of R.E.A.C.H., click here or copy and paste this link into your browser: https://ifsht.org/publications/reach-newsletter-issue-2/.

If you are excited about R.E.A.C.H. and you have skills and interests well suited for the IFSHT Publication Committee, please inquire via email to president(at)ifsht.org . The committee seeks to add one more therapist to their team for the next year. The role would be to work on R.E.A.C.H. and the IFSHT contribution to the IFSSH Ezine.

Please take a look at our website and our new publication and send us some feedback. We welcome your comments and ideas.

Sincerely,

Nicola Goldsmith (UK)

IFSHT President, 2019-2022

Hand and Upper Limb Therapy Paper 2021 - 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?



Block one April 8th - 11th

Block two June 30th – July 4th

Block three September 23rd – 26th

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