Errors in Text

JAMA. 2020;323(11):1098. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.2171

In the Special Communication entitled “Practices to Foster Physician Presence and Connection With Patients in the Clinical Encounter”1 published in the January 7, 2020, issue of JAMA, errors occurred in the text. On page 72, in the Delphi section, “a nurse” should not have been included in the sentence that stated “Individual panelists included physicians, a nurse, health system leaders, patient and caregiver advocates, and researchers with expertise in physician communication and behavior, implementation of physician-patient interpersonal interventions, and medical education.” On page 73, in the Clinical Observations and Interviews With Physicians and Patients section, the information on patients who spoke a second language at home should have reported that patients spoke “Hindi” instead of “Hindu.” A number of minor typographical errors were also corrected. This article was corrected online.
