A detailed understanding of the structure and function of the upper limb provides an important basis for examination and management in hand therapy. In this 2-hour workshop we will explore the clinically relevant anatomy of the upper limb, using a variety of resources including prosections, plastinated specimens/slices, bones and models.

Learning objectives

  • Describe the course of the major peripheral nerves of the brachial plexus in the arm and forearm, and understand the sites where they are vulnerable to injury/compression
  • Describe the anatomy and function of the bones and joints of the upper limb including key ligaments and intra-articular structures
  • Revise the anatomy of muscles of the upper limb, and discuss their actions and innervation
  • Discuss the anatomical relationships between the musculoskeletal and neurovascular structures in shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, in the context of their function.

Each workshop is limited to 25 people
