[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
This study  aims to determine the bioethical implications of organ donation among Registered Nurses and Medical Doctors at East Avenue Medical Center. Methods:  
This descriptive survey utilized the convenience sampling method. Only those registered nurses and medical doctors who were present on duty during the distribution of survey-questionnaire were taken as samples.
The research instrument used in this study was the questionnaire  checklist which was drawn  from the literature and was prepared by the researcher in collaboration with his adviser and faculty members of the graduate school  to gather pertinent information needed for the study. Results: Findings revealed that majority of the respondents are younger in age; male, single and had young government service and are medical doctors. Registered nurses and medical doctors  agree that there are bioethical issues regarding organ donation. There is no significant difference  between the perception of registered nurses and that of the doctors regarding organ donation issues. The problems encountered by registered nurses and doctors related to organ donation are commodification of body parts, knowledge deficit about organ donation, organ/tissue rejection, moral/religious/cultural issues, and risks during procurement/operation. The proposed solutions to the identified problems are the following, health education through symposium, seminar and health teaching, setting up of National Registry and modern equipment/medication. Conclusion: 
Registered nurses and medical doctors both agreed that there were bioethical issues regarding organ donation. There is no significant difference between the perception of registered nurses and that of the doctors related to organ donations. Knowledge deficit about organ donations is the number one choice among the problems encountered by the registered nurses and doctors. Health education through symposium, seminar and health teaching ranks the first to solve the identified problems regarding organ donation.
