  1. QALYs: The Basics Volume 12, Issue s1, S5–S9, Article first published online: 20 February 2009

An error appeared in the paper “QALYs: The Basics” by Milton C. Weinstein, George Torrance, and Alistair McGuire (Value Health 2009;12(Suppl. 1):S5–9).

On page S5, the sentence that reads, “We note, however, that decision-makers may also have other objectives such as equity, fairness, and political goals, all of which currently must be handled outside the conventional Special Issue [5] addresses some of these variations on the conventional QALY” should read:

“We note, however, that decision-makers may also have other objectives such as equity, fairness, and political goals, all of which currently must be handled outside the conventional QALY cost-effectiveness model. The next article in this Special Issue [5] addresses some of these variations on the conventional QALY.”

Also, the footnote pertaining to Table 1 on page S6 which refers to Reference 6 should refer to Reference 8. We apologize for this inconvenience.
