Incorrect statement: In “Aboriginal community controlled health services: leading the way in primary care” in the 16 June 2014 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2014; 200: 649-652), there was an error in the “Workforce and training” section on page 651. The sentence “The Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network has recently signed an agreement with the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation seeking to increase Aboriginal medical student placements in Indigenous primary health care settings with a view to increasing participation in and enhancing the effectiveness of the medical workforce” should have stated that the agreement was made with Medical Deans Australia New Zealand, not the LIME Network. The LIME Network is a project of Medical Deans that orchestrates many of their Indigenous health initiatives, but the partnerships between organisations are made at the Medical Deans level.
