In “A Multistate Quality Improvement Program to Decrease Elective Deliveries Before 39 Weeks of Gestation” by B. T. Oshiro, L. Kowalewski, W. Sappenfield, C. C. Alter, V. R. Bettegowda, R. Russell et al (Obstet Gynecol 2013 May; 121:1025–31), several errors occurred.

* In the acknowledgments, “Gerald Carrino” should be “Gerard Carrino.” The authors regret this error.

* In the third paragraph of the Results, the sentence incorrectly reads, “Inductions Elective inductions decreased 72% from 9.5% to 2.7% (P=.029), and elective cesarean deliveries decreased 84% from 43.5% to 7.1% (P<.001).” The correct sentence is, “Elective inductions decreased 72% from 9.5% to 2.7% (P=.029), and elective cesarean deliveries decreased84% from 43.5% to 7.1% (P<.001).” The publisher regrets this error.

* In the final sentence of the fourth paragraph of the Discussion, the sentence incorrectly reads, “Also, although we did not find a change in the singleton late preterm birth rate over the 12-month project duration, any changes in the late preterm rate associated with a quality improvement program to reduce elective early term deliveries may require longer periods of time after practice patterns to become firmly established.” The correct sentence is, “Also, although we did not find a change in the singleton late preterm birth rate over the 12-month project duration, any changes in the late preterm rate associated with a quality improvement program to reduce elective early term deliveries may require longer periods of time to show an effect after practice patterns become firmly established.” The editorial office and publisher regret this error.

In “Influence of Food Intake on the Predictive Value of the Gestational Diabetes Mellitus Screening Test” by P. Wang, M-C. Lu, C-W. Yu, L-C. Wang, and Y-H. Yan (Obstet Gynecol 2013; 121:750–8), several errors occurred.

* In the third paragraph of the Materials and Methods, the sentence incorrectly reads, “Women with multifetal pregnancies, a history of GDM, or positive 50-g glucose challenge test results but negative 100-g OGTT results were excluded (Fig. 2).” The correct sentence is, “Women with multifetal pregnancies, a history of GDM, or positive 50-g glucose challenge test results but no 100-g OGTT result were excluded (Fig. 2).” The authors regret this error.

* In the final paragraph of the Materials and Methods, the incorrect reference was cited in the sentence, “The association between the fasting interval and the predictive value of the two-step approach was analyzed using the χ2 test, and the partition χ2 test was used to find the significant cutoff.15” The correct reference number is 14. The publisher regrets this error.
