PCORI withdrew the abstracts summarizing the findings of the project "Helping Patients with COPD Transition from Hospital to Home—The BREATHE Study" from our website pending corrections to the study results. Lead investigator Hanan Aboumatar, MD, MPH, identified an error in the original analysis of the study findings, which was published in JAMA in 2018.
JAMA has now retracted the original article and, on October 8, 2019, published this corrected version of the paper along with an Editorial, Editor's Note, and a Notice of Retraction from Dr. Aboumatar explaining the issue and the measures that were taken to address it. JAMA has made the full text of all four articles available free of charge.
PCORI will repost the abstracts summarizing the results once they are revised to present the corrected findings and add a link to them here.
