PEARL - Pain in Early Life
PEARL (Pain in Early Life) is a Network for Research and Education that was established in 2014 to initially bring together pediatric pain researchers in Nordic countries. Since then, activities have also targeted other countries. The aim of the network is (1) to provide parents with evidence-based information on pediatric pain and its relieving strategies, (2) to provide healthcare professionals with evidence-based tools for the management of pain, and (3) to perform collaborative research.
The work of PEARL and its members will benefit sick and hospitalized children and their parents, and in addition increase scientifically sound research on pediatric pain especially in the Nordic countries.
