The Dutch Society for Hand Therapy (NVHT) has developed a system of hand therapy accreditation granting of a ‘Certificate of Hand Therapy’ (CHT-NL). The “Hand Therapist Profile” is used as a basis for the development of this certificate.
To apply, applicants must fill out an online application form. Besides the general CV and working experience, points are granted in various areas of hand therapy competence or expertise. These areas are: “working experience”, “knowledge, skills and education in the field of hand therapy” and “contribution to the field of hand therapy (presentations, publications, active role within the Dutch society)”. At least 100 points must be achieved to meet the criteria.
