Correction to: BMC Res Notes (2018) 11:27 https://doi.org/10.1186/s13104-018-3139-6

After publication of our article [1] we became aware that we had not obtained permission to reproduce the questions from the eight-item Morisky’s Medication Adherence Scale. The table in this Correction replaces Table 2 in our article. In addition, the second number for the MMAS-8 question 2 was incorrect and has been updated to 223 (79.6).
