Description:
The Higher Education Authority is the statutory body with responsibility for furthering the development of higher education. In particular, section 6 of the Higher Education Authority Act, 1971 requires the Authority to "maintain a continuous review of the demand and need for higher education". The HEA advises on the total number of places needed within higher education and engages in periodic review of the current provision in various disciplines. This study focuses on the demand and need for pharmacy graduates, and in so doing, looks to the future development of the pharmacy profession in Ireland. Peter Bacon & Associates, Economic Consultants were commissioned to undertake this study and the Authority would like to thank them for their work. The study outlines a comprehensive analysis of the factors influencing the supply and demand of pharmacists and makes a number of recommendations for a way forward. This report is now being published by the Authority in order to facilitate discussion and decision-making in regard to this important area.
