Objective To understand the basic situation and the loss of blood donors,to develop recruitment plans,and to create a fixed team of stable blood donors based on evidence. Methods From January 1,2015 to December 31,2015,485 donors who donated during this period were randomly extracted using questionnaire,among which 263 were first time donors,while 216 were repeat donors. Results Donors' gender,age,education,occupation and income influenced their behavior( P 0. 05). When surveying first time blood donors and repeat donors,a comparison was conducted on their knowledge before donation. However,six parameters out of seven were statistically significant( P 0. 05). The anxiety level of difference between repeat donors and first-time donors was statistically significant( P 0. 05). Conclusion Donors' loss could be attributed to many factors. Currently,adjustment of the recruitment plan and establishment of a stable team of regular blood donors can promote voluntary non-remunerated blood donation and healthy development.
