Background: Diagnosis of cancer is associated with fear of dying, which greatly affects the human dignity of the individual. In Iran, the psychological issue of these patients, including human dignity and interventions in this field, has been underestimated.

Purpose: To determine the effect of spiritual intelligence training on human dignity in cancer patients

Methods: This randomized clinical trial study was performed on 75 cancer patients admitted to Omid Hospital in Mashhad. They were randomly assigned to intervention (23 patients) and control (n = 27). . The intervention group underwent spiritual intelligence training according to King's (2008) model during ten sessions of one and a half hours. The control group received routine care. The data collection tool was a standard human dignity questionnaire completed before intervention and 8 weeks after intervention. Data were analyzed using SPSS 21 software, t-test and t-test.

Results: There was no significant difference between the mean score of total human dignity in the intervention and control groups before the intervention (p = 0.68). But there was a significant difference between the mean changes in the total score of human dignity in the intervention and control groups (p <0.001)

Conclusion: Spiritual intelligence training can enhance human dignity in cancer patients. Therefore, it is recommended to use it in hospitals
