PEARLS are succinct summaries of Cochrane Systematic Reviews for primary care practitioners. They are funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health and are written by Prof. Brian McAvoy, Honorary/Adjunct Professor of General Practice at the Universities of Auckland, Melbourne, Monash and Queensland.
PEARLS provide guidance on whether a treatment is effective or ineffective. PEARLS are prepared as an educational resource and do not replace clinician judgement in the management of individual cases.
The PEARLS can be used free of charge for research or teaching. No commercial use is allowed.
