Perceived Responsibility to Act: An Investigation With Respect to Registering Willingness to Become a Posthumous Organ Donor
British journal of psychology (London, England : 1953) 2010 Aug; 101(Pt 3): 503-17
Two questionnaire studies (Ns=238 and 497) were guided by the original theoretical specification of the triangle model of responsibility. These investigated the relationship between perceived responsibility to register willingness to posthumously donate one's organs and people's self-reported actual and intended registration behaviour. Exploratory factor analyses suggested that various responsibility-related constructs could be differentiated, several of which explained unique variance in participants' registration status. Although predominantly derived from it, these constructs provided little support for the specific manner in which the triangle model has previously been conceptualized and operationalized. Implications for theoretical development, future empirical research, and organ procurement are discussed.
