Change to Reflect Corrected Study Findings

JAMA. 2019;322(14):1419. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.15816

In the Letter to the Editor entitled “Self-medication as Part of Self-management Plans for Patients With COPD,”1 published in the May 21, 2019, issue of JAMA, a word needed to be changed to reflect the corrected findings in the study by Aboumatar et al2,3 that the intervention led to more, not fewer, hospitalizations and emergency department visits. The first sentence of the letter now reads as follows: “The randomized clinical trial by Dr Aboumatar and colleagues demonstrated that the combination of transitional care support and long-term self-management resulted in more hospitalizations and emergency department visits for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).” The first reference was also updated to reflect the republished article. This article was corrected online.
