Aim: To build a terminological subset to control the symptoms of tumor wounds in patients under palliative care, using the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP®). Method: This is a descriptive, exploratory research, with a quantitative approach, based on the construction of a terminological subset to control the symptoms of tumor wounds in patients under palliative care, using the ICNP® and the Wanda Horta reference system. The research setting is the Antonio Pedro College Hospital (HUAP, in Portuguese), located in the city of Niterói, Brazil. The studied population will be composed of nurses and professors, experts in tumor wounds who provide assistance to patients under palliative care at the HUAP. The validation of the statements regarding nursing diagnoses/interventions/results will be based on the opinion of these specialists using simple statistical analysis of the indexes generated by the answers of the participants.
