Rewording in Discussion for Clarification

JAMA Surg. 2019;154(3):272. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2018.4925

In the article titled “Association of Attending Surgeon With Variation in the Receipt of Genetic Testing After Diagnosis of Breast Cancer,”1 the wording regarding guidelines referred to in the Discussion has been revised for accuracy. The guidelines referred to had not been published at the time of the study,1 so the sentence, “Guidelines published after this study was conducted recommend pretest genetic counseling and acknowledge that the complexities in interpretation of modern panel testing require that providers (eg, laboratories, oncology physicians, and counselors) with particular expertise in cancer risk assessment be involved in their ordering and interpretation,” was added for clarification. The article was corrected online.
