In the Original Investigation by Tjia et al titled “Use of Medications of Questionable Benefit in Advanced Dementia,” published online September 8, 2014, in JAMA Internal Medicine (doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2014.4103), an incorrect percentage was given for the estimate of questionably beneficial medication use in the first sentence of the second paragraph of the Discussion section. The sentence should read as follows: “Our current estimate of questionably beneficial medication use (54%) is higher than a prior estimate2 of 38% in a sample of 323 nursing home residents with advanced dementia drawn from 22 Boston-area nursing homes, and higher than the reported 29% among 34 residents in a Chicago-area palliative care program.7” This article was corrected online.
