Attitude Toward Death, Fear of Being Declared Dead Too Soon, and Donation of Organs After Death.
Hessing, Dick J.; Elffers, Henk
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v17 n2 p115-26 1986-87
Describes a study of willingness to donate organs for transplantation after death based on Weyant's cost-benefit model for altruistic behavior. Two death anxieties (the attitude toward death and the fear of being declared dead too soon) were introduced to help explain the discrepancy between attitudes and behavior in the matter of organ donation.
