ARRUDA-COLLI, Marina Noronha Ferraz de; MULLE, Rafael Lima Dalle; PASIAN, Sonia Regina  and  SANTOS, Manoel Antônio dos. Cross-cultural adaptation of assessment tools in Palliative Care: Integrative literature review. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.20, n.2, pp. 191-200. ISSN 1677-0471.

Considering the need for reflection on the processes of cross-cultural adaptation of assessment instruments used in the context of Palliative Care, this study aimed to conduct an integrative literature review and analyze methodological strategies and technical care for their implementation, considering the guidelines proposed by the International Test Commission. An electronic search was performed in the PubMed, BVS and SciELO indexing databases, crossing the keywords/descriptors: cross-cultural adaptation, translation, validation, palliative care, and end-of-life, for publications between 2006 and 2019. Articles published in Portuguese, Spanish or English, which focused on adapting Palliative Care assessment instruments to Brazil were selected, retrieving 12 articles for full analysis. The steps of cross-cultural adaptation were presented, however few studies described the set of internationally recommended categories. This low adherence to international guidelines suggests the need for greater methodological systematization and detailing of research results.

Keywords : psychological assessment; palliative care; international test commission; adaptation; review.
