Data “irregularities” prompt retraction of palliative care papers

bmjspcA group of researchers in Singapore has lost two 2013 articles in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care for problems with their data.

One of the articles was titled “Patients with Dysphagia: Encounters in Taking Medication;” the other, “Issues Associated with Delirium Severity Among Older Patients.” In both cases, the first and second authors were Rajaram S and Chua HC, of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

According to the retraction notices:

This abstract has been retracted on the request of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

We regret to announce that we must retract this article because irregularities in the published data have been detected post-publication.

We attempted to contact the journal and will update this post if we hear back.
