Assess the knowledge regarding organ donation among people seeking health care
Organ donation is a boon to the medical industry as it has helped in saving the lives of those who would have died otherwise. There is a great need for human organs for transplantation. In fact, the need exceeds the supply of transplantable organs. The shortage of organs has several reasons. Perhaps the most common is that people are hesitant to donate organs because they don’t have adequate knowledge regarding it. In other cases people are reluctant to donate organs due to the false beliefs surrounding organ donation. Purpose of this study was to evaluate the level of knowledge regarding organ donation among people seeking health care.10 people health care seeking were selected through the convenient sampling technique. Findings revealed that mean level of knowledge was 7.6 and there was a significant association of level of knowledge with educational qualification.
