Abstract

Regardless of the number of lifetime donations, the same set of TPB variables, both in composition and in relative strength, predicts intention. A feeling of self-efficacy remains equally important for all donors. It is worthwhile to study whether directed intervention strategies are necessary to target self-efficacy within donor groups with different levels of donation experience.
