Alternative methods of increasing donations were assessed in 1990 by a subcommittee of the Ad Hoc Donations Committee (established by UNOS [United Network for Organ Sharing]). The subcommittee soon realised that much of the present debate about these controversial issues went on without serious consideration of the opinion of the general public; none of the previous Gallup or other polls had included questions about presumed consent or compensation for organ donation. Therefore, the subcommittee conducted a nationwide survey to assess public attitudes about alternative methods to increase donation and to see whether any of these methods offended the sensibilities of the general public....In this article we shall discuss the findings on attitudes about presumed consent, financial and non-financial incentives for organ donation, and reasons for these attitudes.
