ERRATUM.

Please note an error in the Continuing Education Series article "Update on phosphate binders: The old and new" by Cashin & Battistella that was published in CANNT Journal in 2016 (Issue 26, Volume 1, pp. 17-21). It was reported in Table 1: Comparison of Common Phosphate Binders Available in Canada on page 19 under the Potential Disadvantages column, that sevelamer carbonate (RENVELA[R]) "tablets can be crushed". The product monograph for RENVELA[R] (Sanofi-Aventis, 2017) states that "RENVELA (sevelamer carbonate) tablets should not be bitten, chewed or broken apart prior to dosing."
