While drafting a related article, the authors of an article published last year discovered an error in the description of how sample size was calculated (Frasure-Smith N, Koszycki D, Swenson JR, Baker B, van Zyl LT, Laliberté M-A, Abramson BL, Lambert J, Gravel G, Lespérance F. Design and rationale for a randomized, controlled trial of interpersonal psychotherapy and citalopram for depression in coronary artery disease (CREATE). Psychosom Med 2006;68:87–93 ). On page 91, in the second paragraph of the Sample Size section, points 5 and 6 should have read as follows: “5) adjustment for loss of final assessment of not more than 5% (n/0.95); (6) adjustment for noncompletion of 12 weeks of treatment of not more than 20% in each group (n/((1- 0.20)2).”
