Abstract

One aspect that may contribute to the limited availability of donor organs is a lack of knowledge about the legalities of organ donation (OD). Using a randomized controlled trial (RCT), this study aims to identify the effect of health education programs on the level of knowledge and attitudes towards organ donation among nursing students. There were no significant differences in the knowledge and attitude level for both groups. However, the pamphlet group shows a positive correlation between the level of knowledge and attitude. The study revealed that pamphlets and videos have similar results in terms of educating OD.

Keywords: Organ donation, health education, knowledge, attitude.
