In the original publication of this article,1 the total number of essential variables included in the template was incorrectly stated several times, as the result of a numbering error in Table 1. The template includes a total of 24 essential variables. A corrected version of Table 1, with proper numbering of the variables, is included below.

The authors apologize for this error.
