The e-Newsletter on genetic laboratory services aims at disseminating timely and relevant information in this area to all stakeholders. Published twice a month, the newsletter gives content about relevant events for health services professionals and decision-makers; up to date publications about genetic laboratory services for researchers and health professionals; Web sites providing content on specific themes. Finally, a part of the bulletin is dedicated for the members to share with the community any interesting information regarding the field.

The bulletin is produced by GLS Reseaux, a Québec City-based consulting firm which provides organizations with research, strategic intelligence and knowledge management services and is reviewed by members and partners of CanGèneTest. First, using electronic tools, we scan web sites related to genetic laboratory services from which we are extracting relevant, up to date information. The information is then evaluated by members of CanGèneTest for their relevance to the field. Some keywords, allowing for recognition in the bibliographic database, are then put with the news. Finally between 12 and 15 items, the most relevant, are selected for inclusion in the e-Newsletter. The remaining ones are also added to the bibliographic database.
