[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation ]Purpose: To identify nurses? attitudes toward organ donation and the factors contributing to their behavioral intentions of organ procurement work.

Methods: A cross-sectional survey by a structured questionnaire was conducted in a medical center in Taiwan. The main statistical methods were descriptive statistics, factor analysis and linear regression.

Results: A total of 298 nurses were enrolled (response rate, 82.8%). The total score of the ?attitudes? domain was 3.5 (SD, 0.36; range 1-5) and the score of the ?behavioral intentions? was 3.3 (SD,0.78; range 1-5). In our study, 41.6% of nurses were likely (36.6%) or very likely (5%) to help with organ procurement work. The attitudes of nurse had significant correlation with their behavioral intentions (r=0.447, p<0.001). The linear regression revealed that more positive attitudes of nurses on organ donation (?=0.432, CI=0.463~0.748), more positive will of the patient?s families to organ donation (?=0.177, CI=0.017~0.065), less communication problems with patient?s family (?=-0.114, CI=-0.267~-0.015), and younger nurses (?=-0.100, CI=-0.029~0.000) had better behavioral intentions toward organ procurement work (R2=0.279).

Conclusion: Nurses' approval of organ donation, strong supportive system of the patients, good communication skill, and younger nurses contributed to nurses? behavioral intentions toward organ procurement work. The study suggest that the issue of organ donation should be introduced earlier in the school education program. In the clinical fields, nurses? ethical judgment and communication skill should be improved through the in-service training such as role play workshop or panel discussion within interdisciplinary team.
