Patient Safety Efforts Should Focus on Medical Injuries—Correction

JAMA. 2002;287(18):2363. doi:10.1001/jama.287.18.2363

Incorrect Statement. An incorrect statement appeared in the Medical News & Perspectives article entitled "Study Concludes That Moderate PSA Levels Are Unrelated to Prostate Cancer Outcomes" published in the February 27, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;287:969-970). On page 970, the sentence that read "Studies have consistently found that up to one third of men who died from other causes have large—visible with the naked eye—prostate cancers (Clin Chim Acta. 2002;315:71-97)" should have read "One study found that 27% of men in their 30s and 34% of men in their 40s who died from other causes have small foci of prostate cancer (Clin Chim Acta. 2002;315:71-97). Other studies report similar results (J Urol. 1993;150:379-385 and In Vivo. 1994;8:439-443)."
