Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the extent to which empathy and major contributed to the variance in motivation to blood donation among a sample of volunteers. The sample consisted of 353 university students. The participants were blood donors of 58 females and 128 males, and non- blood donors of 64 females and 103 males recruited from colleges at the Omani Sultan Qaboos University. Tools of this study were developed, and their psychometric characteristics were assessed. The findings indicated that there was a significant linear relationship between independent variables and motivation to blood donation, and factor analysis of the motivation to blood donation scale extracted five factors with good loadings.
