Abstract

The article presents a research objective relevant to the subject matter of bone marrow transplantation. This study aimed at providing the rationale for locating the designed research in the field of health pedagogy. Such ‘assigning a research identity to this project will assist in perfecting it even further. The subject matter undertaken in this article is relevant to the actual experiences of bone marrow donors from the period of undergoing the procedure of transplantation. This subject matter seems to be constituting a terra incognita from the point of view of scientific research, and this supposition is confirmed by the conducted library and sources search. The author attempts to refer, in a succinct form, to certain theoretical conceptions and methodological approaches, which may be used within the frameworks of exploring the thus-defined field of research. The final part of this text is composed of brief comments made by actual bone marrow donors and relevant to their experiences. These comments constitute a sui generis recapitulation of, and a rationale for, the need to conduct the research described in this article.
