2019 Teton Hand and Upper Extremity Conference Preliminary Program

Didactic Study

Course Description: (21 continuing education credits)

Participants will actively learn and participate in the study of a variety of shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand diagnoses. Presentation and lab formats will promote independent and group problem-solving, skill development and foster an environment of collaborative interaction. All will take place in a comfortable, relaxed, breath taking setting! This will be an unparalleled event that is open to the new graduate, CHT candidate, or seasoned occupational or physical therapist who is serious about their lifelong study of the hand and upper extremity.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify understanding of upper extremity anatomy, diagnoses and case study evaluation through group discussion, presentation and individual as well as group lab work.

  2. Recognize the value of personal and clinical collaborative work through multiple small group discussions and labs centered on upper extremity treatment.

  3. Differentiate between initial and concluding knowledge of shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand diagnoses, anatomy and associated pathologies.

  4. Identify a network of colleagues in which to exchange ideas and contact information.

  5. Differentiate the difference and value of studying the segments of the upper extremity via various educational modes and media.

  6. Recognize and understand the importance of health and balance in rehabilitation.
