The analysis of the institutionalization of palliative care trends in contemporary Russian is given by the authors in the methodological plane of the system of social and structural functions (AGIL), proposed by Talcott Parsons. The medicalization of palliative care in Russia is considered by the authors from the perspective of the dysfunctional practices. It is noted that the legislative documents adopted in Russia define palliative care as palliative medical care. The organization of palliative care in Russia takes place simultaneously with the improvement of legal acts, which significantly slows down the process of becoming of palliative care to population and predetermines the limit of its availability. The principle of an integrative approach to the organization of palliative care was not reflected in the process of formation of the normative base. The interdisciplinary view on the organization of palliative care and increase of its availability will allow to verify and to overcome the dysfunctions in the organization of palliative care to the population.
