Abstract

Background: In the field of contemporary medicine, receiving a transplanted organ can be the last hope for many patients suffering from advanced-stage diseases. Despite its benefits, there still persist numerous obstacles that complicate the organ donation process. Presented here are the main findings of a survey that explores the opinions of healthcare personnel and ordinary citizens regarding organ donation. Material and methods: A prospective, open-label, observational, descriptive study was conducted using a non-validated survey adapted from Grupo Ángeles Servicios de Salud. A total of 65 surveys were administered at the Graphic Clinic of Buenos Aires City, and 65 surveys were given to citizens of Buenos Aires City. Results: The gathered information was categorized into four content-based categories: I. Knowledge of the issue; II. Attitudes towards the donation process; III. Personal actions taken; IV. Expectations regarding the organ transplant process. The results are presented in table format, and no statistically significant differences were observed among them. Conclusion: It is not feasible to reach a categorical conclusion regarding whether health personnel show a greater willingness to donate organs compared to citizens in general. This is due, in part, to the equivalence of the results and the size of the sample, obtaining a result that may not be representative of the entire population. It is possible that increasing the number of people who register as organ donors will increase the number of transplants
