Following the publication of the original article [1], the authors notified us of a few mistakes:

  • In the Results section of the Abstract, “disease severity (β = − 0.143; SE = 0.043)” should actually read “cost burden for the government (β = − 0.140; SE = 0.050)”.

  • In the Results section of the body of the article, the phrase “Increasing survival after treatment was the most important attribute in the present study (36%), followed by promoting QoL (27%), alternative treatment” should read “Increasing survival after treatment was the most important attribute in the present study (34%), followed by promoting QoL (26.5%), alternative treatment”.

  • In the 7th paragraph of the Discussions section, the phrase “The last attribute for entering a drug into the list of subsidized drugs was disease severity” should read “The fifth important attribute for entering a drug into the list of subsidized drugs was disease severity.”.

  • In the 8th paragraph of the Discussions section, the phrase “The fifth important attribute for entering a drug into the list of subsidized drugs was the cost burden for the government.” should read “The last attribute for entering a drug into the list of subsidized drugs was the cost burden for the government.”.

  • In Table 4, the values for the relative importance (last column) are changed:

    • 36 becomes 34.1

    • 27 becomes 26.6

    • 17.20 becomes 22.6

    • 13.10 becomes 7.8

    • 3.40 becomes 4.1

    • 3.30 becomes 4.8

The original article has now been corrected.
