Medical Social Worker Role in Human Organ Donation Awareness From Doctors Point of View


Abstract | الملخص

This research aims to clarify and explain the role of medical social workers in promoting awareness about organ donation, particularly in the stage of making a final decision about donation. The researcher relies on quantitative and qualitative methods, utilizes a simple random sample of 20% of doctors working in three hospitals. The sample size is approximately 480 doctors. The study also includes interviews with a group of organ donors. The results of the study revealed that the preparatory stage for organ donation is a collective responsibility in which social workers participate effectively 2.96. This is because their average is greater than the average of the measurement tool (2). Further, the overall average of 2.96 reflects the consistency of the agreement of the sample with the particular variable of the effective role of the social worker. There is a positive trend between the decision to donate organs and the variable of the relationship between the social worker, doctor, and family of the patient. This is because the average is greater than the average of the measuring tool. Further, the overall average of 2.96 reveals the reflection of the consistency of the sample with the positive trend and its importance. Regarding the nature of the relationship between the social worker and the medical team, I notice a positive trend in the sample because the average is greater than the average of the measuring tool (2). We also note that the overall average of 2.96 reflects consistency of the sample with the variable of “team spirit” between the social worker and the rest of the medical team and the administration in the hospital. Finally, the researcher recommends the completion of further research toward developing the performance of social workers in the field of organ donation
