Corrected Data in Table and Clarification of Rationale

JAMA. 2014;311(17):1809. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.4346

In the Special Communication entitled “2014 Evidence-based Guideline for the Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults: Report From the Panel Members Appointed to the Eighth Joint National Committee (JNC 8)” published in the February 5, 2014, issue of JAMA (2014;311[5]:507-520. doi:10.1001/jama.2013.284427), one of the rows in Table 6 contained incorrect information. The drug treatment options for the Diabetes row for the 2014 hypertension guideline should be identical to those for the general categories. In addition, a clarifying sentence was added to the rationale for Question 2: Evidence Statement 17. This article has been corrected online.
