Abstract

We temporary retreat the paper by Groenewegen et al and will provide a revised version. The reason is that we have made a serious mistake in recoding the dependent variables that form the task shifting scale. Instead of recoding not applicable (no nurse in my practice) into no , as stated in the method section, we have recoded it by mistake into yes . As a consequence Figure 1 and Table 1 are incorrect. The tables presented in the Supplementary Material are correct. The analysis has to be done anew and the conclusions will be partly different. For those countries that have a low number of practices with not applicable (no nurse in my practice) the differences will be small and this is the majority of countries. However, the results and discussion sections have to be rewritten.
