Abstract

Introduction: In Singapore, the donation of tissues is governed by the Medical (Therapy, Education and Research) Act. For past years, our tissue banks have engaged in various publicity methods. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of our publicity strategies among healthcare professionals. Method: A 6-questions survey was conducted among doctors, nurses, allied health and support services staff from Singapore General Hospital and National Heart Centre Singapore. Sample size was calculated in accordance to the occupation ratio. Results: Of the 450 respondents who completed the survey, most did not see, read or heard about tissue donation. Newspaper articles were their main source of information amongst those who encountered tissue donation message. All categories of staff concurred that presentations by tissue banking experts is the best way to convey the message. All occupations except doctors, reported that information on how tissue donation improved a recipient’s life will interest them. On contrary, statistics and facts will interest doctors more. Conclusion: Results highlighted our publicity methods have not been effective in conveying tissue donation message to healthcare audiences. Hence, there is a need to re-strategise its publicity efforts, so that information on tissue donation can be effectively delivered to them.
