Abstract

Title Change

To the Editor:

The title of the article that Dr Cora and I wrote, and that was published in the June 1986 edition of the Journal qf Gerontologien! Nursing, was erroneously changed from "Current Research and ANA's Statement on the Scope of Gerontological Nursing Practice" to "ANA Speaks Out. " The title of the article as printed in the June edition indicates that the American Nurses' Association was somehow involved in this research project and now is publishing the results. Neither Dr Cora nor myself is employed with the ANA, nor was the ANA involved at any level with this project; therefore the title that is printed is in error. The title that Dr Cora and I submitted with the article when we requested consideration for publication, and which was on the final proof, correctly reflects what the article is about. We therefore request that you publish an erratum to reflect this change of title.

Also the sentence following the title states that "the results are based on a four-year survey of nursing literature. " As indicated in the article, the results are based on a five-year survey of nursing literature, from 1980-1984.…
