Pre-conference workshops

Anatomy workshop - wrist and hand

Venue: Dissecting Room, Department of Anatomy, University of Otago
Thursday 24 March 2022
Workshop 1 | 8.00am - 10.00am
Workshop 2 | 10.30am - 12.30pm
Presenter: Stephanie Woodley

A detailed understanding of the structure and function of the wrist and hand 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 wrist and hand in the context of the entire upper limb, using a variety of resources including prosections, plastinated specimens/slices, bones and models.

Learning objectives

  • Describe the anatomy and function of the bones and joints of the wrist and hand, including key ligaments, intra-articular structures, and the carpal tunnel
  • Identify the extrinsic and intrinsic muscles of the wrist and hand, and discuss their actions and innervation
  • Discuss the anatomical relationships between the musculoskeletal and neurovascular structures in the wrist and hand, in the context of their function

We will be running the same workshop twice so you only need to attend one or the other, not both.

Spaces are limited so get in quick!
