Description:
Embedded in our health service, working with individuals from across the lifespan, are a group of professionals highly skilled in promoting behavioural change. Passionate about fostering wellbeing, their research and models of health behaviour change have led the way in advancing public health in Ireland. In essence, while there are no Psychologist posts specifically assigned to the Health and Wellbeing Division, Irish Psychologists remain one of the greatest untapped resources for the Health and Wellbeing Division. Psychologists work throughout our healthcare system, in both community and hospital-based settings, and in all tiers of service provision (e.g., primary, secondary and tertiary care). This document sets out the means by which this rich resource can be utilised to materially advance the goals of the Health and Wellbeing Division and ensure that “every encounter counts.” This document sets out 10 key recommendations whereby utilising current structures, and engaging in new initiatives, could dramatically expand the scope and effectiveness of Health and Wellbeing initiatives.
Keywords:
