TraQ's electronic newsletter reports monthly updates to the website and is sent to everyone who registers to receive them.
The TraQ newsletter is back! We've been unable to send a newsletter since March due to moving to a new server and transitioning to a new content management system with associated challenges. Trust you missed us, she said ROTFL.
The June newsletter includes these highlights:

Diseases: CFS's link to XMRV seems increasingly unlikely
Industry news featuring 2 ends of the spectrum: Leading drug maker stops funding doctors' travel to congresses; US Army probes industry payments to military doctors
Literature: Many interesting additions inc. papers on informed consent & patient understanding of transfusion, professionalism in the digital age, and research showing that maternal antibodies disappear earlier than thought from infant circulation
Resource library: Resources from IBMS in the UK: Giving results over the telephone; Guidance to the role of the laboratory quality manager
New TM blog: "Shine a light" (Musings on what we take for granted & shouldn't)
