The objective of the study is to analyze the activities within the framework of the regional program «Development of the palliative care system», which was developed and approved in the Krasnodar region in order to increase the availability and quality of palliative care for residents of the region. During the analysis, problems were identified that arose during the implementation of the program: lack of a single focal point for monitoring, analysis and forecasting of palliative care in the region, insufficient provision of internists, pediatricians, paramedical staff in hospitals for palliative care. By comparing emerging problems with available research in this area, measures are proposed that will improve the quality of palliative care, which in turn, will bring palliative care closer to international standards. In the region, by 2021, it is planned to put into operation 2 focal points; creation and maintenance of a unified database (registers) of patients suffering from chronic pain syndrome who receive primary medical care by the end of 2020, with the subsequent integration of electronic registries into a unified health information system of the region by 2024. An 80% staffing level is planned for medical organizations providing specialized palliative care, by 2024.
