Brief Summary:
The study evaluates the knowledge, attitude and practice about organ transplantation among medical students and medical staff.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Transplantation, Organ Behavioral: survey

Detailed Description:

Globally, almost every second a transplanted kidney comes from a living donor (LDTx); in Europe it is 18.1%, but in Poland it is only 2% (0.6 for 1 million from living donors). The number of patients awaiting on kidney transplantation (KTx) is increasing, and the number of deceased donors is constantly at a low level. This disturbing situation should motivate the entire interdisciplinary health team to seek new solutions.

In the study the investigators are examining how medical students and medical staff feel about the issues of organ transplantation, especially: organ shortage, cost of organ transplantation, definition of brain death.

The investigators are planning to focus on the following specific questions:

What is the level of knowledge about organ donation among participants? What are the sociodemographic, sociocultural and socioeconomic characteristics of listed as an Organ Donor and non-listed as an Organ Donor among medical staff and medical students? Evidence on the role of financial and other incentives in eliciting organ donation.

Survey




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of participants who approve prosocial motivation to organ donation [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Percentage of healthcare workers and medical students with appropriate attitude assessed by 10- items questionnaire about perception towards financial and other incentives in eliciting organ donation. For each correct answer participant receive 1 point (0-1 point scale).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Results of the Medical Knowledge Tool (Questionnaire) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Percentage of healthcare workers and medical students with appropriate knowledge assessed by 10- items questionnaire about basic information about organ registry and qualification to transplantation. For each correct answer participant receive 1 point (0-1 point scale).

  2. Results of the Practice Tool (Questionnaire) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Percentage of healthcare workers and medical students with appropriate practice assessed by 10- items questionnaire about basic information about practice with organ donation (prohibited and unethical practices). For each correct answer participant receive 1 point (0-1 point scale).
