Abstract

Purpose: To examine differences in spirituality, purpose in life, and attitudes
toward organ donation between people who signed and those who did not
sign an organ donor card.
Design: A descriptive cross-sectional survey conducted in Israel with a sample
of 312 respondents from the general population, of whom 220 (70.5%) signed
an organ donor card. Data were collected during April–June 2013.
Methods: Participants completed a paper questionnaire and a Web-based
questionnaire consisting of four sections: spiritual health, purpose in life, at-
titudes toward organ donation, and social-demographic questions. Descriptive
statistics, t test, chi-square test, and a logistic regression analysis were per-
formed.
Findings: Differences in mean scores between respondents who signed an
organ donor card and those who did not were indicated in transcendental
spirituality (p < .01), purpose in life (p < .05), and attitudes toward organ
donation (p < .01). No statistically significant difference was found between
the groups in the overall spirituality mean score. The spiritual transcendental
dimension, individual’s purpose in life, and attitudes toward organ donation
explained 34.3% of the variance of signing an organ donor card.
Conclusions: Signing an organ donor card was found to be correlated with
high purpose in life, positive attitudes toward organ donation, and low level of
transcendental spirituality.
Clinical Relevance: Nurses should assess the patient’s spiritual needs in or-
der to construct appropriate programs for promoting signing an organ donor
card. Nurses who signed an organ donor card should be encouraged to share
this information with their patients.

Organ donation in the Western world is entirely depen-
dent on the willingness of people to donate organs af-
ter their death. In Israel, organ donation from deceased
donors is made following the determination of donor
brain death, after which the family is required to make
a decision about whether to donate the deceased fam-
ily member’s organs. When family members are aware

Abstract

Purpose: This study identifies the healthcare education needs of incarcerated
women in a state corrections facility.
Methods: This was a naturalistic qualitative study. Focus groups included two
groups of adult women incarcerated in a state corrections facility. One group
consisted of women housed in maximum security, and one group consisted
of women housed in medium security. Data were analyzed using a constant
comparison approach.
Findings: Three guiding questions provided the foundation for the identified
themes. Themes included six healthcare education topics important to incar-
cerated women and three related to health education strategies best suited for
incarcerated women.
Conclusions: Trust, respect and empowerment are key concepts in educating
incarcerated women about their personal health and health of their families.
Clinical Relevance: With over 200,000 women incarcerated in the United
States today, creating policies and practices that focus on the healthcare edu-
cation needs of women that are woman focused may enhance knowledge and
skills and may ultimately lead to reduced recidivism.

Over 200,000 women are currently imprisoned in the
United States, a number that has grown more than 800%
over the past three decades (Institute on Women & Crim-
inal Justice, 2009). Because the majority of prisoners are
male, prison programs often focus on issues faced by male
prisoners and overlook those faced by female prisoners
(Bissonnette, n.d; Stolnik, 2011). As the population of in-
carcerated females continues to increase at a rate nearly
twice that of males (Stolnik, 2011), health-related pro-
grams, educational opportunities, and initiatives focus-
ing on the specific needs of female inmates are becoming
more and more essential.

Incarcerated women often have a history of sub-
stance abuse; physical, sexual, and emotional trauma
(Bissonnette, n.d.); and limited access to healthcare ser-
vices (Palmer, 2007). The World Health Organization
has identified this trend globally, as research conducted
in the United Kingdom (Palmer, 2007) revealed simi-
lar conclusions. Because of intense, pre-incarcera
