The article is devoted to the organization and promotion of palliative care for children. The desire to maintain a comfortable life for those suffering from incurable diseases is receiving an increasing response from the state and health authorities at both the federal and regional levels. At the same time, assistance is provided not only by state health organizations, but also by private ones, relying on the support of various funds. At the same time, there is a lack of special, including sociological, research in this area, which would make it possible to find the most vulnerable places in the organization of palliative care. Indeed, it is often difficult to identify and account for those in need of a special type of medical support, which does not allow providing patients with an adequate standard of living. Based on the results of the conducted sociological research, the authors point out the need to improve management practices in the provision of palliative care.
