The population was black critical care nurses working in Gauteng Province. Participants had to have exposure in their work to situations where organ harvesting or transplantation was done. Data gathering was done using in depth interviews.The study resulted in six themes that emerged and these reflected positive as well as negative feelings.

The main recommendation of the study is that information be made available regarding organ donation and transplantation.
