International Student Survey on the Knowledge and Attitudes towards Donation and Transplantation of Organs/Body Parts (ISSATO)

Department of Medical Ethics and History of Medicine

Duration: 2018-2021

Carried out by: Dr. Sabine Wöhlke


The aim of the planned survey is to analyse the knowledge and the attitudes of students across different European countries about the regulations’ of post-mortem organ donation.
We want to shed light on key ethical and social challenges that organ transplantation raises with a focus on laypersons’ attitudes in different European countries. This study will strengthen the public discourse and give ethical recommendations for dealing with this technology.
