Incorrect Information in Patient Page

JAMA. 2018;320(13):1387. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.13459

In the JAMA Patient Page entitled “Screening for Cervical Cancer,” published in the August 21, 2018, issue of JAMA,1 incorrect and incomplete information was published regarding the USPSTF screening recommendations. In the illustration, the second sentence under “USPSTF recommendation” should have read “For women aged 21 to 29, screening should be done by a Pap test every 3 years.” The third sentence should have read “For women aged 30 to 65, screening can be done by a Pap test every 3 years, a high-risk HPV test every 5 years, or a Pap test plus a high-risk HPV test every 5 years.” This article was corrected online.
