PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Incorrect report of the number of items in the outcome measure

The End-of-Life in Dementia–Comfort Assessment in Dying (EOLD-CAD) outcome measure has 14 items, as correctly reported in the paragraph "Outcome," not 12 items, as incorrectly reported under "Analyses" where the imputation procedure is described.
