Corrections


September 7, 2017: In the Methods section of the article “Clinical telemedicine utilization in paediatric nephrology at a tertiary care centre” (page 8), the author AR is incorrectly referred to as a nurse practitioner. AR is in fact a registered nurse (RN). We regret that this error was included.
