Description:
The most recent manpower survey of psychology posts (Breaden & Woods, 2010) indicated that there were 647.34 Whole Time Equivalents (WTEs) working in the Irish health services in 2008. However, psychology managers and many other stakeholders recognise that this level of staffing is insufficient. The purpose of this paper is to examine the two not totally dissimilar population- and needs-based methods of estimating workforce requirements and to outline which might be the best method to calculate how many psychologists are needed in Ireland.
