Journal of Occupational & Environmental Medicine:
In the June 2012 issue of JOEM, information in Table 1 in the articles “Exposures of Concern to Veterans Returning from Afghanistan and Iraq”1 and “Risk Communication in Deployment-Related Exposure Concerns”2 was incorrect. Military Service Members are not asked about exposure concerns on the Pre-Deployment Health Assessment, so for both active and reserve components, the answers in the pre-deployment phase should be N.A. The corrected table for both articles is as follows:
1. Teichman R. Exposures of concern to veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. J Occup Environ Med. 2012;54:677–681.
2. Santos SL, Helmer D, Teichman R. Risk communication in deployment-related exposure concerns. J Occup Environ Med. 2012;54:752–759.
