Intermediate Course on Common Hand Conditions 
Presented by Jennifer Mathais and Dane Johnson, this course involves a more detailed approach to assessing patients with hand conditions and give you the skills to thoroughly assess the patient, design a treatment plan and know when to seek a Surgical opinion. 


This course is for the therapist who has had some experience with basic hand conditions and wants to increase the depth of their knowledge to be able to accurately diagnose and treat these patients independently. 

Please note; it would be beneficial if therapists complete the introduction to hand therapy, but not essential. 


At the completion of this course, therapists will; 

  • Demonstrate a detailed understanding of upper limb anatomy 

  • Complete an initial assessment with a patient whilst appreciating further diagnostic assessments 

  • Apply clinical reasoning to plan a treatment approach
