In this book we have presented discussions of the latest thinking on a range of issues that are relevant to the quality assurance of assessment in health professional education. The timing was interesting, because the book was commissioned just before the COVID-19 pandemic, and most chapters were written during the first wave of the pandemic. Chapters cover the rationale for assessment QA, the roles and responsibilities of QA assessors, assessment of knowledge and clinical competence, workplace-based assessment, programmatic assessment, use of technology and standardisation. The publisher challenged us with the question: how meaningful are these topics in an era of major disruption to ‘normal business’? Therefore, this final Chapter draws together elements of these discussions in the context of the changes forced by the major disruption experienced by all. Are there lessons to be learned from these experiences? We address the question: to what degree will the disruption lead to longer-term changes to assessment practices and how they are quality assured? We begin with the recent pandemic as a case study and then present some comments on the international impact and responses.
