In the article by Sheppard et al (Sheppard JP, Stevens R, Gill P, Martin U, Godwin M, Hanley J, Heneghan C, Hobbs FDR, Mant J, McKinstry B, Myers M, Nunan D, Ward A, Williams B, McManus RJ. Predicting out-of-office blood pressure in the clinic [PROOF-BP]: derivation and validation of a tool to improve the accuracy of blood pressure measurement in clinical practice. Hypertension. 2016;67:941–950, doi: 10.1161/HYPERTENSIONAHA.115.07108), which published online ahead of print March 21, 2016, and appeared in the May 2016 issue of the journal, corrections were needed.
On p 945, Table 3, the Diastolic Prediction Model values for age were incorrect. The β-coefficient −0.33 has been changed to −0.08, the 95% confidence interval range −0.62 to −0.05 has been changed to −0.16 to 0.01, and the P value 0.022 has been changed to 0.060.
In Figure S6 in the online-only Data Supplement, coefficients were rounded to two decimal places. However, such rounding does in fact alter the estimate of home clinic blood pressure difference arising from this equation, and Figure S6 has been revised with coefficients given to 7 decimal places.
The authors apologize for these errors.
