Changes in the structure of public health are marked in health care round the world. Patients with chronic diseases which limit their life-important needs will live longer, suffer and as a result of these factors they will need palliative care. The article presents the author's analysis of modern interpretations of palliative care from the perspective of multi-professional and multidisciplinary approach. The article considers the main trajectory of a chronic disease, defining the modern palliative care strategy. Also the article presents the main objectives and directions of palliative care. The authors state that the adopted Russian legislative documents define palliative care as palliative medical care. The medicalisation of palliative care in Russia is considered by the authors from the perspective of the dysfunctional practices of the social institute of health.
