Bill n. 3 of 2018 (Lorenzin Law) paints the picture of a complex, progressively built regulatory framework. In this framework we can observe elements of the translation of healthcare professions into a sectorial, organized/order framework that can be undoubtedly novel. We ought to focus on the underlining of the bivalent nature of the association/order system in this new legal framework. Its validity is both preserved and focused on when it comes to the organizational perspective. The marked publicization of generic orders, derived from their qualification as subsidiary institutions of the State, co-exists with a strengthening of their traits as organizations, among which the deontological profile of the organizational function stands out. This marks a change of perspective, in which one can observe the confrontation, intended by the lawmakers, between instrumentalization/representativeness and a multileveled governance system. This contributes to placing healthcare-related orders within a dense network of relations, one which opens new beneficial possibilities for both the members of professional communities and the collectivity as a whole.
