This chapter introduces the key aspects of learning and teaching relevant to educators in nursing and professions allied to health and social care. In response to changes in policy, demography, and health and social care delivery, the context is continuously dynamic and one which can bring challenges to the education of the future workforce. This necessitates developing curricula which both acknowledge and reflect these changes whilst maintaining academic rigour. This chapter therefore looks at the implications for healthcare professional education in response to policy agendas. Health and social care provision is a closely governed industry and these regulatory processes are discussed both in their capacity to impact on service delivery and the education of the professional workforce.
