Errors in Text

JAMA Surg. 2021;156(3):294. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2020.6594

In the Letter to the Editor titled “Effects of Geographic Redistribution Policy on Access to Organ Transplant,”1 published online November 25, 2020, in JAMA Surgery, there were errors in the first and third paragraphs of the text. The second sentence of the first paragraph should read “However, it is important to note that, setting aside a patient’s access to getting on the wait list, there are 2 distinct drivers of a listed candidate’s access to the pool of available kidneys being allocated for transplant: (1) allocation policy that determines rank ordering of kidney offers and (2) transplant center behavior in accepting kidney offers for their listed patients.” The year listed in the first sentence of the third paragraph should be 2013. This article has been corrected online.
