Incorrect statement of risk: In Factors associated with psychiatric morbidity and hazardous alcohol use in Australian doctors in the 2 August 2010 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2010; 193: 161-166), there was an error in the last paragraph of the Results section (page 163). The wording of the last sentence of the paragraph should be: “Doctors were at less risk of hazardous alcohol use if they: trained overseas rather than in Australia (OR, 0.56 [95% CI, 0.39–0.81); worked more than 60 hours a week compared with less than 40 hours a week (OR, 0.67 [95% CI, 0.45–0.99]); and had not taken a holiday in more than a year (OR, 0.63 [95% CI, 0.43–0.93]).”
