Erratum to: Evaluation of biases present in the cohort multiple randomised controlled trial design: a simulation study

Jane Candlish,corresponding author1,2 Alexander Pate,1 Matthew Sperrin,1 Tjeerd van Staa,1,3 and on behalf of GetReal Work Package 2

Erratum

After publication of the original article [1], it came to the authors’ attention that there was an error affecting the References. The published Reference 14 [2] is incorrect, and should have cited a different article by Pate et al. [3].

Pate et al. [3] should have been included in the Reference list as 14, and the subsequent references (and citations within the article text) should have been renumbered.

Footnotes
