OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the attitudes and psychosocial factors that could influenced them toward living related kidney donation among the relatives of renal failure patients in a renal transplant center in central China.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: A validated questionnaire was self-administered and completed anonymously.
RESULTS: The questionnaire completion rate was 84.1% (301/358). A total of 65.5% (197/301) of respondents favored related living donation. The variables relevant to attitude included: age (P < .001); knowledge about living related kidney donation (P = .001); concern about mutilation after donation (P < .001); attitude towards deceased organ donation (P < .001); and participation in prosocial activity (P = .017).
CONCLUSION: Many psychosocial factors influence attitudes toward living related kidney donation. To overcome the difficulties, the medical establishment, media, and related government departments must further publicize and popularize knowledge about end-stage organ failure and transplantation.
