"Closed Trauma" Course in Queensland

Posted: November 2020

Leah and Brad recently attended a “closed trauma” course with the Australian Hand Therapy Association in Queensland.

The course built on existing knowledge of human anatomy, biomechanics, and function as well as tissue injury and repair.

They had the opportunity to identify appropriate evidence-based therapeutic strategies, splinting, protocols and guidelines depending on the patient's stage in recovery and complications.

A range of conditions were covered, and they were able to further develop their clinical reasoning skills to complex clinical scenarios, including but not limited to; Neurovascular conditions, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, musculotendinous & musculoskeletal conditions, fractures and ligamentous injuries.
