In the October, 2017 audiocast, “Statins for primary prevention of CVD: To start or not to start?” Dr. Doug Campos-Outcalt drew an incorrect conclusion when he used himself as an example to demonstrate the application of recommendations from the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) and the US Preventive Services Task Force. He indicated that he would qualify for starting low- to moderate-dose statins under both sets of recommendations when, in fact, he would qualify only under the ACC/AHA recommendations. The audio file has been revised to reflect the proper conclusion.
