|dc.description||The evaluation of effectiveness can take a number of forms. One measure is effective financial control i.e. that the money is spent and accounted for in accordance with legislative or regulatory policy . Another is that the money is used in a manner supportive of the policy of the legislature or control department to achieve specific objectives; for example, that hospital expenditures are properly managed so as to contain overall costs and allow for some re-allocation to other areas of the health care system such as primary and community care. A third measure of effectiveness (and the most intractable) relates to appropriate use i.e. that the money is not being diverted or captured by health care workers (through wage increases or increasing sophistication of equipment) to the detriment of patient care expenditure.||en_GB|
