In light of previous chapters, the final chapter outlines how recent developments in the regulation of doctors are a result of the fluctuating social conditions associated with the emergence of the risk society. It discusses the possible future of risk-based forms of medical regulation and sets out a conceptual and policy-focused research agenda for ascertaining the impact of regulatory reform on both the public and the medical profession.
