Error in Results and in the Figure 3B Label and Plotted Values

JAMA Psychiatry. Published online November 24, 2021. doi:10.1001/jamapsychiatry.2021.3357

In the Original Investigation titled “Effectiveness and Acceptability of Cognitive Behavior Therapy Delivery Formats in Adults With Depression: A Network Meta-analysis,”1 published in the July 2019 issue, there was a numeric and content error in the Results section. The sentence given as “Guided self-help format ranked considerably lower than the other treatment formats (1.6%; RR=0.72)” should have presented the relative risk as 1.39, followed by the phrase “increasing dropouts in comparison with care as usual.” In addition, the label of Figure 3B given as “Acceptability” should have been “Dropouts from study (acceptability).” The values for the forest plot of Figure 3B presented dropouts of care as usual over each of the treatment formats but should have presented dropouts of the various formats over care as usual. A Letter of Explanation2 has been published that explains the errors. This article has been corrected. This article was previously corrected on July 17, 2019, to fix a label error in Figure 3B.3
