Introduction: The Dignity Therapy (DT) aims to help patients at the end of life to resignify and give meaning to the process of illness through the narrative of the most significant life stories and has shown positive impacts on various aspects of the suffering of the sick individual. However, little is known about the repercussion of this modality of intervention in Brazilian samples due to the scarcity of studies with a high level of scientific evidence in this area. Objective: To translate and culturally adapt the Dignity Therapy Issues Protocol to be applied in Brazilian patients with advanced cancer. Material and methods: A descriptive and methodological study, which will be carried out at the Palliative Care Unit of the Barretos Cancer Hospital. It will be developed in three complementary stages, being the process of translation (translation, synthesis of translations, back translation, synthesis of back translation), evaluation by a committee of experts (semantic/idiomatic, conceptual and cultural evaluation) and finally a pre-test of the version evaluated by the experts that will be applied in 30 patients being followed-up in Palliative Care. Expected results: It is expected that the version of the Dignity Therapy Questions Protocol will be culturally adapted and may be useful for implementation in clinical practice in Brazilian oncology palliative care and other areas.
