In the Commentary entitled "Evaluating the Teaching of Evidence-Based Medicine" published in the September 4, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;288:1110-1112), references in the last 2 paragraphs of the article were misnumbered, as were the corresponding references in the list. The corrected text and corresponding references are reprinted below.

Randomization of learners is possible8,16 as is blinding of assessors.8,17 Investigators have assessed EBM skills other than critical appraisal, including building structured clinical questions and search strategies.16 There are several validated measurement tools,8-10, 18 and several new measures of behavioral change await validation. For example, a recent study objectively measured the behavioral outcomes corresponding to the quality and quantity of literature searches.16 A preliminary study reported assessing audiotapes of resident and attending encounters to determine the frequency with which residents incorporate evidence in their patient care.19

Collaborative efforts are under way among numerous institutions to evaluate EBM teaching interventions. While multi-institutional research has been rare until recently, it could provide a giant step forward for research into the optimal ways of teaching EBM.15
