Congratulations to Drs Rosser, Godwin, and Seguin for their evaluation of the Ontario College of Family Physician’s 5-weekend programs.1 Not only have they initiated an innovative capacity building program, but they also took the time to evaluate it!
I recently attended a Canadian Institutes of Health Research–sponsored meeting where a targeted funding program was evaluated. I was particularly impressed with the data presented—they actually tracked the subsequent research productivity of participants. Although knowledge of the research grant success of the 5-weekend participants would likely not be within the authors’ realm, it would be very instructive to report on the publication record of the participants. The organizers presumably have the participants’ names, and record of their publications would be in the public domain.
