Using our many lenses to approach hand therapy intervention
Wed, Mar 27, 2013 3:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST
(Philippine time – Wed, 27 Mar 27, 2013 3-4 PM)
This free presentation will cover the infusion of ‘authentic/occupation based’ practice into hand therapy. This webinar clarifies a conceptual way of tying the biomechanical approach together with the occupation based approach so that both goals can be accomplished in the clinic. Amini will provide concrete steps about incorporating these approaches into practice, which has historically been a source of confusion for many therapists.
