The University of Manchester Panel of Investigation has investigated concerns about the conduct of research following the reporting of errors in the Original Investigation, “Association Between Physician Burnout and Patient Safety, Professionalism, and Patient Satisfaction: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis,”1-5 that was published online first on September 4, 2018, and in the October 2018 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine. We received a report from the University of Manchester indicating the following: “the Panel of Investigation found no evidence of intentional fabrication. However, due to flaws in the systematic review process, it is likely that there are additional errors in the publication. The Panel therefore cannot confirm that the results of the meta-analysis are wholly valid and recommend the paper be retracted.” Thus, this article1 has been retracted.
