  1. Correlates of support for organ donation among three ethnic groups.

    Article - En anglais

    Telephone interviews about organ donation were conducted with 4880 white respondents, 634 African-American respondents and 566 Hispanic respondents.

    Forty-three percent (42.9%) of whites, 31.2% of Hispanics and 22.6% of African-Americans reported that they were willing to donate their organs after their death (p<0.001).

    Logistic regression analysis revealed three significant correlates of willingness to donate across all ethnic groups :

    • having had a family discussion about end-of-life issues ;

    • the belief that a doctor does all he or she can to save a life before pursuing donation ;

    • and concerns about surgical'disfigurement'of a relative's body after donation.

    Concerns in relation to body disfigurement were more prevalent among African-American and Hispanic respondents (p<0.001) than among white respondents.

    Public education should : a) stress the need for family communication about end-of-life issues including organ donation ; b) underline the fact that donation is considered only after all efforts to save the life of the patient are exhausted ; and c) reassure minorities that the body of the donor is treated respectfully and not disfigured.
