An author's error occurred in this editorial by Barnett S Meyers (1 February, pp 321-2). The first reference cited should have read: “Maguire CP, [not Conor PM,] Kirby M, Coen R, Coakley D, Lawlor BA, O'Neill D. Family members' attitudes toward telling the patient with Alzheimer's disease their diagnosis. BMJ 1996;313:529-30.” Similarly, the authors should have been referred to in the text as “Maguire et al” not Conor et al
