Broad Support Among Americans for Tissue and Organ Donation for Research
Broad Support among Americans for Tissue and Organ Donation for Research
The advocacy group Research!America is out with a small, new survey that finds broad support for the donation of tissue and organs for research. Here's more:
- The survey: More than 1,000 adults were surveyed about their views on organ and tissue donation for research, as well as whether they were signed up to be donors.
- The findings: 92% of those surveyed agree — most of them strongly so — that organ and tissue donations help with medical innovation. Majorities of respondents also support donation at death for transplants and for research.
- Registered donors: At the same time, 55% of those surveyed said they were registered as organ or tissue donors. Among those who weren't registered, they cited indecision as a major reason why.
