Background: The most important components among the factors which constitute an attitude include the emotional, cognitive and behavioural components. Socio-demographic factors, norms and rules, denomination, customs and knowledge of transplantation of organs as well as the factors affecting it are also significantly influential among the inhabitants of the countryside in the Podkarpackie province. The aim of this thesis: is to present selected aspects of attitude.
Material/Methods: The research was conducted in February 2009 among 100
inhabitants of the countryside in the Leżajsk district which has 1500 inhabitants. The method used was that of diagnostic opinion poll. The research tool was the Questionnaire in the authorship version.
Results: Over a half of all the interviewees are in favour of transplantation of
organs from the deceased. As many as 74% of the people questioned would
donate their organs to their dearest ones. Slightly more than a half of the respondents would agree in writing to donate their organs post mortem. Nearly half of them are ready to sign the consent for the collection of organs.
Conclusions: 1. The interviewees are convinced that treatment with the
transplantation method is right; however, they are not ready to take such a decision. 2. Most of them would like someone else to be the donor of organs to help their beloved or close relatives; the group of people ready to donate is slightly smaller. 3. Only every third person questioned declares to be ready to take an immediate decision to donate an organ to one of their beloved or close relatives.
