Hand Therapy Awareness Week 1-7 June 2020

Join us in celebrating Hand Therapy Awareness Week 2020! 


Nominate a Local Legend!

Do you know a therapist that goes the extra mile to support their patients through innovation and dedication?  Help us recognise their efforts during Hand Therapy Awareness Week 2020.

Hand Therapy Awareness Week is an annual event designed to raise the profile of hand therapy in the community and amongst referrers and is proudly supported by the AHTA.  

The event will run from 1-7 June 2020, and this year we are asking you to nominate a Local Legend! This therapist could be someone that has solved a unique problem very creatively, or have been faced with a particularly complex trauma case requiring a lot of work and skill, or they are just a consistently wonderful person, caring for their patients each day.

If your entry wins, both you (the Nominator) and the therapist (the Legend) will win a prize! The Nominator can choose between an Apple iPad OR Samsung Galaxy Tablet PLUS a cover (valued up to $700, which can be issued as an Officeworks voucher) and the Nominee will receive a $500 voucher for Performance Health products, a leading supplier in consumer healthcare products.

Nominations for the AHTA Local Legend are now open, and can be made by members of the general public as well as the Association. For full details of the competition, please review the terms and conditions located on the entry form below.

To nominate a legend, you just need to complete your entry by 5pm AEST June 4 2020.


The competition is now closed for entries - Congratulations to our winners for 2020, Nicholas Criticos and patient Verity.
