Background and Objectives
Safe blood is one of the important necessities of clinical settings. Furthermore, blood donation has many benefits for donors. The purpose of this study was to assess the theory of planned behavior on blood donation behaviors of the staff.
 
Materials and Methods
In this descriptive study, 280 administrative staff in Arak city were selected by random sampling in 2014. The required data about the demographic characteristics and theory of planned behavior were collected by questionnaire. The two groups of blood donors and non-donors were then compared. The data were analyzed with t-test, SPSS 20 and Chi-square.
 
Results
About 56 percent of the participants in this study were blood donors with only 14.3 percent being regular blood donors. The blood donor group was significantly higher than non-donor in age, years of service and body mass index. Moreover, blood donation rate in men was more than women (p < 0.001). There was no significant difference in education and marital status between the two groups. The mean of knowledge, attitude, perceived behavioral control and intention in blood donors was significantly higher than the other group.
 
Conclusions
The study showed that the level of knowledge, attitudes and perceived behavioral control in the blood donor group was significantly higher than the other. Therefore, it seems necessary to design training programs with emphasis on these constructs especially in young people and female staff.
