dc.description.abstractPurpose: This study was performed to investigate the knowledge and attitudes about organ donation from the perspective of liver transplant patients. Design and Methods: The study was conducted at the organ transplantation clinics. The data were collected by the researchers from 129 participants using in-person interviews. Findings: In this study, 83% of patients received the organ from live donors, 36% received liver transplants in the previous 1 year, more than 70% agreed to donate their organs, and 80% thought awareness should be raised in society about organ donation. Conclusion: It was found that the participants in the sample needed information on the issue, although the sample consisted of individuals who had experienced organ donation. It is important that nurses and nurse managers understand the level of knowledge and the attitudes of organ donation patients who have undergone liver transplantation. Worldwide, organ donation is not at the desired level. This study aims to enhance in nurses and nurse managers the foresight regarding and awareness about behaviors of transplantation patients. © 2020 Elsevier Inc.en_US
