The authors of this research paper by Stefan Bachmann and colleagues (BMJ 2010;340:c1718, doi:10.1136/bmj.c1718) reviewed their results, in light of Gary Naglie’s rapid response pointing out an error, and identified two errors in table 2. The description of intervention characteristics for Naglie et al and Stenvall et al were mislabelled during compilation of the table: the details for Naglie et al should state that it included goal setting and patient assignment, whereas the study by Stenvall et al did not include patient assignment. The authors have verified that all information used in the meta-analyses was abstracted correctly and all analyses were conducted with the correct information.
