Queniart, Anne. 2013. «Blood Donation Within the Family: the Transmission of Values and Practices ». TRANSFUSION, vol. 53, p. 151s-156s.
«This article presents the results of our study, which aimed to examine the role of family in the transmission of practices and values associated with blood donation.» (p. 151s)
«[T]he findings of a number of studies suggest that donors, more often than nondonors, come from families with other members who donate blood. Does this mean that the practice of blood donation is transmitted from one generation to another? And if so, how? Through which processes? Beyond blood donation itself, what role does the family play in the transmission of altruistic values?» (p. 151s)
«The survey participants were recruited using the Progesa database of Héma-Québec, which is based in Montreal, Quebec […] Concretely, semi-structured interviews were held with 52 people.» (p. 153s)

«Suite aux entrevues effectuées, l’auteure conclut que «[t]he transmission of blood donation values and the practice of blood donation itself is a complex process to understand, as it is mainly driven by a series of modeling-related practices. Indeed, for many, blood donation practices are transmitted through what is unsaid, namely examples, actions, gestures, and emotions. By accompanying their parents to blood drives at a very young age and seeing that their parents were proud to wear their pin or came home from a blood drive with a band-aid, the children seem to have gradually developed a sensitivity toward the cause of blood donation, a sensitivity that reflects certain prosocial values and that over the years transforms into a desire to become a donor in turn. In other words, the parents in these families allow their children to develop a “donor identity,” so that blood donation becomes a completely incorporated part of them, a part of who they are.» (p. 155s)
