One of the ways our team members lead is by teaching and helping students with course materials.
Lisa Choe, FOI’s Hand & Occupational Therapy Manager, recently edited two chapters for a key reference book for ASHT.
The American Society of Hand Therapists (ASHT) is an organization of professionals dedicated to advancing the field of hand and upper extremity therapy by promoting education, advocacy, research, and clinical standards. ASHT members include occupational and physical therapists, advanced practice practitioners, surgeons, researchers, and administrators.
Hand therapists who want to earn Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) credentials must pass the CHT test administered by the ASHT. ASHT’s Test Prep for the CHT Exam, 4th Edition: Study Outline and Clinical Reference, is a detailed reference tool for therapists desiring to earn the Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) credential. Lisa served as the editor of two chapters of this book: Flexor Tendon and Extensor Tendon – chapters 6 and 7.
Lisa continues to lead the way by sharing her teaching expertise for tomorrow’s therapists. The book serves as a valuable resource for referencing relevant anatomy, surgical procedures, treatment progressions, and orthotic regimens for the various diagnoses that therapists treat daily.
