Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Donation av vävnad och/eller organ behövs för att hålla igång transplantationsverksamheten. Transplantation har funnits länge och har växt avsevärt de senaste åren. Trots detta råder det brist på donatorer och kunskap inom området för allmänheten.

Syfte: Syftet var att undersöka kunskap och attityder kring donation och transplantation bland sjuksköterskestudenter, samt undersöka om det finns någon skillnad mellan män och kvinnor gällande kunskap och attityder.

Metod: Webbenkät med 439 deltagare på sjuksköterskeprogrammet termin 1-6, där 84 svarade på enkäten. Totalt 22 män och 62 kvinnor.

Resultat:De största angivna anledningarna till att inte donera var etiska skäl 17%, (n=14) samt avsaknad av kunskap 17%, (n=14). Resultaten kunde ej påvisa signifikanta skillnader mellan könen i frågor som attityder, benägenhet samt anledningar till att donera respektive inte donera. Attityderna kring transplantation och donation av vävnad från deltagarna var genomgående positiva 100%, (n=84) trots att endast ca hälften av deltagarna 48% (n=40) var registrerade donatorer sedan tidigare. Nittiosex procent (n=81) av studiegruppen kunde tänka sig att ta emot en donation om det skulle höja deras livskvalitet eller rädda deras liv. Blodkomponenter 78%, (n=66) och organ/ annan vävnad 70%, (n=59) var de vanligaste att kunna tänka sig att donera, och altruism verkade vara den största anledningen.

Slutsats: Sammanfattningsvis kan det sägas att mer information behövs för att allmänheten ska kunna ta välinformerade beslut om donation samt att vidare forskning behövs inom området.

Abstract [en]

Background: Donation of organic tissue and/or organs is crucial in the transplantation network. Transplantation has existed for a long time but it has grown substantially during the last few years. Despite of this there is a shortage of donors and knowledge of the subject.

Aim: The aim was to examine the nursing student’s knowledge and attitudes towards donation and transplantation and examine if there are any differences between men and women in knowledge and attitudes.

Method: Eighty four out of 439 participants responded to an internet survey, 22 men and 62 women from 1st – 6th semester in the nursing program.

Results: The major reasons stated not to donate were ethical reasons 17%, (n=14) and lack of information 17%, (n=14). The results could not show any relevant differences between the genders when it came to attitudes, tendencies or reasons to donate or not donate. The attitudes towards transplantation and donation of tissue were entirely positive 100% (n=84) despite the fact that only 48% (n=40) of the participators were registered donors. Ninety-six percent (n=81) of the studied group would consider receiving a transplant if it could save their lives or enhance their quality of life. Blood components 78%, (n=66) and organs/other tissue 70%, (n=59) were the most common choices to donate and the reason seemed to be altruism.

Conclusion: To conclude, more knowledge is needed for the general public to make well-grounded decisions concerning donations and also more research and studies are needed to be conducted in the field of transplantation.
