—In the Commentary entitled "Structured Advance Planning," published in the August 9, 1995, issue of THE JOURNAL (1995;274:501-503), incorrect wording appeared in the text. On page 502, in the fourth full paragraph, the second sentence should read: "Seminal reports indicate that advance directives are more often completed by white than black Americans, and that fewer life-sustaining interventions are desired by white than black Americans.12" The fourth sentence should read: "In favor of the former, Morrison and colleagues found that existing advance directives were recognized significantly more frequently for white than black Americans."
