Correction to: Sex and Gender Differences in Ischemic Heart Disease: Endocrine Vascular Disease Approach (EVA) Study Design
Correction to: Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research
The authors of this study protocol would like to amend it and clarify that medication adherence was assessed using the 4-item validated Morisky, Green, Levine scale [Morisky DE, Green LW, Levine DM. Concurrent and predictive validity of a self-reported measure of medication adherence. Med Care. 1986 Jan;24(1):67–74] rather than the 4-item Morisky Medication Adherence Scale.
Therefore, please modify accordingly:
1) Page 1 - Section “Abbreviations” - MMAS-4 Morisky Medication Adherence Scale-4 Items.
Please remove the abbreviation aforementioned.
2) Page 6 – Subheading “Clinical, Pharmacological, and Gender-Related Factors”.
Manuscript text: “pharmacological therapy and Morisky Medication Adherence Scale-4 Items ”.
Please change the text as follows “pharmacological therapy and medication adherence ”.
Please change the reference 75 [Shalansky, S. J., Levy, A. R., & Ignaszewski, A. P. (2004). Self-reported Morisky score for identifying nonadherence with cardiovascular medications. Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 38(9), 1363–1368] that should be read “Morisky DE, Green LW, Levine DM (1986). Concurrent and predictive validity of a self-reported measure of medication adherence. Med Care 24(1):67-74”.
