2.3 Supervision, monitoring and evaluation

• monitoring of performance of the trainees individually and as a group; and
• evaluation of the benefits (or otherwise) of including acupuncture in primary health care (and at other levels) where it was not previously available, and of its cost-effectiveness compared with other forms of treatment for common conditions.
