Value Errors in Tables and Abstract

JAMA. 2016;315(1):90. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.16955

The Rational Clinical Examination Systematic Review entitled “Does This Patient Have Posttraumatic Stress Disorder? Rational Clinical Examination Systematic Review” published in the August 4, 2015, issue of JAMA1 had incorrect data in the Abstract, in Table 3, and in eAppendix 5. In the Abstract, 2 sentences were removed and some values were rounded. The Trauma Screening Questionnaire row of Table 3 has an added footnote and the values for the Total Patients, PPV, and NPV columns should be 152, 44, and 89, respectively. In eAppendix 5, there is an added footnote and the values for sensitivity, specificity, LR+, and LR− columns in the Trauma Screening Questionnaire row should be 0.95 (0.90-0.97), 0.26 (0.22-0.30), 1.3 (1.2-1.4), and 0.20 (0.10-0.41), respectively. This article was corrected online.
