This chapter pulls together the various threads of the collection by considering the future of health policy and workforce dynamics in rethinking professional governance in the international context. It begins by discussing the significance of the nation state as a navigator and the demand for institutional regulation across the various health professional groups, and how this is connected to new forms of professionalism. Then, it traces the translation of new forms of governance into professional development and the reconfiguration of boundaries, highlighting opportunities as well as new risks. It also considers the dynamics of de-regulation and the demands for re-regulation with regard to a mobile workforce, including different challenges, such as the gendered flexibilisation of work arrangements and migration tracks.

Keywords:   health policy, workforce dynamics, professional governance, institutional regulation, healthcare workforce
