Abstract

Present article aims to identify a part of the patterns of representation and explanation of the low rate of organ donation among ICU physicians, neurologists and hospital neurosurgeons from Moldova’s region hospitals. The methodology used was a qualitative one. The results obtained from the interviews show that essentially there are three dominant explanatory models: the systemic model, the informative model, and the educational model. These three models show somehow the pessimistic attitude of medical professionals towards the issue of organ donation and organ transplant.

On the other hand, these three new models we had identified can also be three major solutions that could improve the current situation.
