SASHT is a body that is open to Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists. Our courses promote therapeutic assessment and management of all conditions involving the upper limb and hand. It is the individual’s responsibility to practice within their scope and skills base. Courses are aimed to improve knowledge and not to certify the specific course modality. Participants will receive an attendance certificate. This is not a certificate of competence.
