In the Editorial titled “Failing Grade for Shared Decision Making for Lung Cancer Screening,”1 published in the October 1, 2018, issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, language citing an Original Investigation by Kinsinger et al2 reporting false-positive findings must be clarified. The phrase in the second paragraph of the Editorial that reads “these harms include a 98% false-positive rate” should more correctly read “the proportion of all positive tests that are falsely positive is 98%.” This Editorial has been corrected online.
