Across many countries, professional governance is under the spotlight of health policy makers and subject to public debate. This book provides new data and geopolitical perspectives in the debate over how to govern healthcare. It sets out to highlight new international directions and the significance of national contexts for the changing health workforce based on complex sets of cultural and institutional regulatory patterns. One central goal of the new health policies that are emerging is accountability and control of professionals, which in turn calls for tighter regulation and new forms of professional development. This chapter describes the changing context of professional governance, researching the changing international governance in healthcare, new health policies remaking state-professions-citizens relationships, professional development and the structure of the book.
