An evidence-based resource about
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
This website has been discontinued and the evidence-based summaries it contained are now available on the Ministry of Health website:
The following online health information resources also provide useful information:
- The Cochrane Library – www.moh.govt.nz/cochranelibrary
- BMJ Best Treatments – www.besttreatments.co.nz
The original website was originally developed as a pilot funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health and involving two organisations: New Zealand Health Technology Assessment and the New Zealand Guidelines Group. The purpose was to provide the New Zealand public with evidence-based information about the use of CAM therapies for particular medical conditions.
Development of the website was stopped in 2006 because only a small number of evidence summaries could be produced with the resources available and a change in priorities.
