Attitudes to organ donation

Frank Doyle, Psychology. Keywords: population health, organ donation, attitudes, intervention.

Although most people are in favour of organ donation, a minority sign up for donation. This project will investigate cognitive and emotional factors that inhibit and enhance signing up for organ donation and discussing this with family members. We aim to design interventions to maximise donation.
