This course is for qualified occupational therapists and physiotherapists working in the field of hand therapy. Building on the competence, this course will enable students to continue learning, evaluating, maintaining and developing services for current and future hand therapy provision.

They will develop their ability to critically evaluate and reflect on their own practice in hand therapy while reviewing the theory that is fundamental to hand therapy. The course will help to develop their understanding of research methods and research skills so that you feel empowered to improve their clinical practice. 

Students will be fully supported by their knowledgeable academic team, which will help them with their studies by email, phone, online or face to face tutorials. Students will have the option of attending additional study days on campus to meet with tutors, network with peers and advance your study skills. Although this is a distance learning course, the optional Hand Therapy in Practice module involves a practical week on campus in Derby. As well as developing their skills, it will also give you the opportunity to meet your peers and share knowledge and best practice.
