Abstract

The study was to assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of blood donation among continuing medical education students in Sichuan.This study was carried out on 841 continuing medical education students using a self-administered structured questionnaire. The statistical analysis was done by using the SPSS software.Among the 800 students, 424 were donors and 417 were non-donors The score of knowledge (mean11.71±2.22 VS 8.46±3.27) and attitude (mean 9.19±2.42 VS 7.08±2.02) in donors were statistically significant higher than the non-donors. The moral responsibility of altruism was the major reason for donating blood and worrying of the sanitation and getting infectious disease during donation was the major reason for not donating blood. Being male, aged more than 40, worked in grassroots hospital were predictors of being a blood donor.Blood services should take more efforts to improve donation experience and reinforce the positive KAP of CME students through blood donation training could help more grassroots people to know the blood donation and abandon the prejudice of blood donation.
