Abstract:The level of self-efficacy and self-esteem of registered potential bone marrow donors and non-donors was examined. Results indicated that a high percentage of registered potential donors had scored higher than non-donors in task-specific self-efficacy scales. Registered potential donors had higher sense of task-specific self-efficacy than non-donors did. Nevertheless, the results of the general self-efficacy and self-esteem scale, however, revealed that differences between registered donors and non-donors were statistically insignificant. Furthermore, this study was set to identify the major barriers to bone marrow donation. Limited knowledge of bone marrow donation and lack of opportunity were the two major causes that stopped people from becoming registered potential donors.

The results of this study provide a starting point for campaign planners who are considering what approach to use when conducting donor-recruiting promotion. Due to the subjective nature of this study, however, additional research is suggested to determine what methods and messages are effective for recruiting more potential donors.
