The present paper describes the impact and evaluation of two intervention components--a video with group discussion and an interactive computer-tailored program--in order to encourage adolescents to register their organ donation preference. Studies were conducted in school during regular school hours. The video with group discussion in class had a positive impact on the intention to register an organ donation preference as well as on the intention to register as a posthumous organ donor. The computer-tailored program had no surplus value when compared to reading an extensive brochure with general information on organ donation. However, participants appreciated the tailored information more than the brochure. It may be that having provided general information before exposure to the tailored program, the tailored intervention will be more effective. This needs to be tested in a further experiment. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
