Occupational therapy can be described as follows:
In some countries, the occupational title "Hand Therapist" combines the specialties of physical and occupational therapy, which makes sense from the point of view of a hand surgeon. In Germany, the two specialties remain separated. Education, practical activity and charging of fees can, as of yet, not occur together.
In well-functioning "Hand Centers", there is more and more cooperation between the patient, hand surgeon and therapists. Hand surgeons and physical and occupational therapists hold regular meetings in order to discuss the treatment of the patient in question. In this way, it is possible to change the form of therapy when necessary, increase or decrease the duration of therapy, and last but not least the reduction of treatment costs through consequent monitoring of the treatment.
