In the Medical News & Perspectives article entitled “Cancer Care Shows Signs of Strain as Patients Live Longer,” published in the May 7, 2014, issue of JAMA (2014;311:1720-1721. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.3683), a source was misquoted. The sentence by Clifford A. Hudis, MD, American Society of Clinical Oncology president and chief of the breast cancer medicine service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, should have read, “For the first time, we’ve tried to measure what’s going on.” This article has been corrected online.
