The authors wish to make the following correction to the paper [1]. In the fifth paragraph of Section 2. Introduction, where the authors cited from the article by Juliao, et al [2] (This reference is cited as [21] in the original text), the sentence:

Since the publication of our review, Juliao et al [21] have published their work on adapting the DTQP for adolescent’s aged 10 to 18 years in Portugal. They have developed an amended DT set of questions which could be used in practice for sick Portuguese adolescents. Although a five-stage process of validation is detailed, the amended DTQP is not provided and so it is unclear as to whether the new question format is aimed at those with typical/atypical cognitive development and for what conditions. At this stage we therefore cannot be sure if the proposed DT is appropriate for CYP in the UK with LLTC.

Should be changed to:

Since the publication of our review, Juliao et al [21] have published their work on adapting the DTQP for adolescent’s aged 10 to 18 years in Portugal. They have developed an amended DT set of questions which could be used in practice for sick Portuguese adolescents. A five-stage process of validation is detailed, and the amended DTQP was explored via an ambulatory psychology clinic, exploring CYP views, with success. However, it remains unclear if this new protocol would be welcomed by CYP with LLTC and their families, as they were not directly involved in this evaluation. It is also unclear as to whether the new question format would also be relevant for CYP with atypical cognitive development and for CYP experiencing different LLTC with varied disease trajectories. There may also be cultural and care differences in the UK that may influence stakeholder perceptions on DT for CYP with LLTC. At this stage, we therefore cannot be sure if the proposed DT is appropriate for CYP in the UK with LLTC. It is also our motivation for CYP with LLTC to be involved via consultation work and later qualitative study, in the development and adaptation of DT to meet their needs, from the outset.

These changes have no material impact on the discussion and conclusions of the paper. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused to the readers by these changes.
