Comments[edit]

Hi Blood Donation person. My group presented on this topic yesterday we focused on the social theories such as: Theory of Reasoned Action - Intention promote behaviour Theory of Planned Behaviour - Self-Efficacyand And intrinsic motivational causes such as Altruism and Benevolence, Impure Altruism or “Warm Glow”

Info sourced from: Ferguson, E., Farrell, K., & Lawrence, C (2008). Blood Donation is an act of benevolence Rather that Altruism. Health Psychology, 27, 327-336. Misje, A. H., Bosnes, V., Gasdal, O., & Heier, H. E. (2005). Motivation, recruitment and retention of voluntary non-remunerated blood donors: a survey-based questionnaire study. Vox Sanguinis, 89, 236-244. Ferguson, E., Atsma, F., de Kort, W., & Veldhuizen, I. (2012). Exploring the pattern of blood donor beliefs in first-time, novice, and experienced donors: differentiating reluctant altruism, pure altruism, impure altruism, and warm glow. Transfusion, 52, 343-355.

Good luck with it. --Barb Bowen (discusscontribs) 06:54, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I was thinking that it also might be interesting/worthwhile looking into the religious reasons/motivations for donating blood. In a sense it is a way of giving that anyone can do, regardless of economic situations etc. Many churches encourage their congregations to donate. --Janed1987 (discusscontribs) 08:30, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! I have just done an assignment for another unit on blood donation and looked at social motivation behind it. I'm not sure if these will be exactly what you need, but I found them to be really interesting articles even just to get me thinking about what I wanted to write so I hope you find them useful! They are all from EBSCO so you could search the keywords (if you haven't already found all of them!) This is just from my reference list... Feel free to delete this post if it's not helpful!!

Hey Courtney :)

I heard you were finding it hard to find peer reviewed articles on why people don't donate blood. I found this great article on it, although it only covers young people but I guess the reason there could cover older people as well. Let me know if you find it useful.

Hello! I found a really good article on the motivations/behaviour of regular blood donors. Hope it's helpful! http://web.ebscohost.com.ezproxy1.canberra.edu.au/ehost/detail?sid=7383d634-a448-44cc-94b3-ff3e733194ea%40sessionmgr15&vid=1&hid=9&bdata=#db=a9h&AN=14454519Emily.Antonio (discusscontribs) 04:12, 16 October 2013 (UTC) PS. I love the fancy coloured boxes!!!Emily.Antonio (discusscontribs) 04:14, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi there

Dont know if this will be of interest or use to you or not, but... at 16 my daughter who had suffered a life long needle phobia was motivated to give blood during college in order to gain credit points towards her Year 12 certificate. That was three years ago and she still donates every three months.


Good luck :) Rosey0703 (discusscontribs) 05:21, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you everyone! I really appreciate all the help I can get! =) U3061292 (discusscontribs) 04:37, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey Courtney! Here's some feedback on APA/grammar. In your overview I think it's alright to say 27,000 in numbers? But not sure myself. Also you have a doubled typo in the facts section *need blood*. And don't forget the nasty italics in referencing. Emily.Antonio (discusscontribs) 04:32, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Damn those nasty italics.... U3061292 (discusscontribs)

Hey there, I found an article recently that talked about blood donation being more of a benevolent act rather than a purely altruistic one that you might find interesting/relevant. Hopefully it's of some use to you. http://ezproxy.canberra.edu.au/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=pdh&AN=2008-08834-005 Blerg26 (discusscontribs) 06:00, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

I know you've already got a load of feedback, just thought I'd say it's looking good! I love the quiz, and I used some of your blood donation statistics in an oral I have coming up :) Ashkrance (discusscontribs) 06:10, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

Hi there! your chapter is looking great! i opened it because it interested me as i gave blood for the first time in February. I did it through my workplace. There was an incentive of getting paid for the hours that it took to get it done, but also just the satisfaction of knowing that i could be saving a life:) or more!([[User talk: HayleyMuzza17 23 October 2013))

Comments[edit]

Hey Courtney! I've found a useful source here that talks about how the blood donation localisation (ie. where to donation is taking place) influences the donors motivation (whether its internal or external motivation). If you scroll down on the site to the subheading called "the donation situation", you'll find it there. It says "donors at mobile sites are more likely to be first time donors, giving under social pressure, and this with less internal motivation to donate, and they are more likely to experience a reaction or less-than-optimal experience. However, the influence that these settings have on the likelihood that an will donate or will have a good experience and be willing to donate again is not well understood. There are differences between those who donate at fixed sites and those who donate at mobile locations. Donors at fixed sites report more internal motivation, whereas those at mobile sites report more external motivation. This would be consistent with the structure of mobile sites, which are usually arranged around a blood "drive" of some sort involving a community group or a particular need, thus providing the "external"motivation. At fixed sites the donor is usually called by blood centre staff and the donation scheduled as part of the general ongoing blood collection activity, but there is no relation to a particular community or social group or patient."

The whole thing is actually abundant in discussing more of this sort of stuff.

The subheading under the aforementioned talks about how different organisations may influence people in donating blood. Furthermore, you can have a browse of the references in the source, which might exntend your reading horizons and hopefully give you more to talk about if you need it! I hope this is a helpful addition to possibly discussing donation localisation (and possibly more). Good luck! Here is the source: http://books.google.com.au/books?id=Mztde-gn8LMC&pg=PT62&dq=blood+donation+and+motivation&hl=en&sa=X&ei=E99dUpngB8iWiAf64IHQCg&ved=0CFUQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=blood%20donation%20and%20motivation&f=false

Theories- Egotism?[edit]

Hi!, Last week in my Social psychology class presentations a group did blood donation as their topic and discussed the theory of egotism. Perhaps that could help you with the theoretical side of your chapter? It's looking good so far, goodluck! --124.176.50.164 (discuss) 00:49, 27 October 2013 (UTC)u3068359

What motivates and what discourages blood donation[edit]

hey there, I was addressing this in an oral for another class and came up with some points you might be interested in:

reasons for: altruism (more important for women), social influence (more important for men), and curiosity. reasons against: time and inconvenience, donation-related fears, ineligibility (including that women are more likely to have inaccurate perceptions of ineligibility), and apathy.

There is some more info about gender differences, and the interaction between positive and negative motivations for blood donation from this article: Hupfer, M. E., Taylor, D. W., & Letwin, J. A. (2005). Understanding Canadian student motivations and beliefs about giving blood. Transfusion, 45(2), 149-161. Good luck with the rest of your chapter! Ashkrance (discusscontribs) 03:50, 28 October 2013

Hey there, I have a friend who would like to be a blood donor but is extremely afraid of needles, it's pretty much an irrational fear, he doesn't really know why it freaks him out so much. One time he even tried to watch a video to try and get over it and he passed out haha. Anyway it would be interesting to know what he could do about it, I saw you touched on fear of needles a bit but it would also be interesting to know how many others are like him and what he could do to overcome this fear. Anyway your chapter is super interesting, looking forward to reading more. :)Bilbo Baggins (discusscontribs)

Interesting book chapter![edit]

Hi there,

I really enjoyed reading your book chapter!

I really like that you used your own pictures to explain the process of plasma blood donation!

Great efforts!

Good luck on the rest of your wiki ;)

Looks Great[edit]

Hi i was poking through you chapter and thought it was great, all your info is really well presented. i did find a really small fault in your reference list, the 2 references from the red cross are around the wrong way 2011-2012 should come before 2013, other than that small detail i loved it hope mine ends up as good as yours. i loved the quiz was going to try and do something similar but couldn't work it in. good luck and thanks for the great example.

Overall, a creative and balanced presentation, well done. See comments below for feedback

Structure and content[edit]

The presentation covered the main points of the chapter, good job. There was a good coverage of stats and theory, for future improvement integrate some more of the research into the theory component to add more academic feel.

Communication[edit]

The presentation was creative and visually appealing, well done. The presentation also made good use of images. The voiceover was a little fast at times, but this is a minor criticism.

Production quality[edit]

The quality of the production was good, and made use of basic tools to great effect. As above, perhaps rerecord with a slightly slower pace. Good effort! Courtney.reis (discusscontribs)
