In the February 2013 report by Ip et al,1 two of the item weights in Table 2 were incorrect. The correct weights for these items are shown in the corrected table, available at http://links.lww.com/ACADMED/A536, and below:
- 4. Counseling about nutrition does not change behavior: Weight should be −2 (not +2)
- 5. I believe if I eat a healthy diet it would make me an effective role model: Weight should be +2 (not −2)
