Cancer is a public health problem, its treatment is complex and characterized by the presence of physical and psychological stress, making its humanization important. Among the humanization strategies is the Ring The Bell Ceremony, which consists of encouraging cancer patients to ring a bell when they finish their treatment, to create a milestone of return to their routine and activities. The objective of this study is to verify the perception of patients in oncologic treatment about the Bell Ceremony. Specifically, it aims to understand the thoughts and emotions experienced by them during the experience. A qualitative and exploratory research will be carried out, of cross-sectional nature, with a convenience sample. It is expected that through this study it will be possible to identify whether this practice, considered humanizing, is perceived as such by the patients.
