    Medical staff are one of the crucial factors, which guarantee health care service efficiency. However, Russian national traumatologic-orthopedic service exists under the lack of significant lack of staff. Grant program “Zemsky doctor” became one of the problem solving ways.
    Purpose. To evaluate Health resourcing of traumatologic-orthopedic service, and to examine results in completing staff jobs of trauma orthopaedists in medical organization in the subject of the Russian Federation achieved due to “Zemsky doctor” program realization.
    Approaches: analytical, statistical.
    Results. The research is conducted within Stavropol region. It showed that in 5 municipal districts of 36 trauma orthopedist jobs were either not specificated or completed, 6 of 36 had no traumatologic beds. Within the period 2011–2016 we registered negative dynamics of trauma orthopedists completeness from 94,4% to 88,9%. Comparing to 2011, when excluded trauma orthopedists were 23,3% of the general number of fired and hired, in 2016 they were 42,8%. The most active medical staff change is in town medical organizations. Within the period of 2012 to 2016 in terms of “Zemsky doctor” program 12 trauma orthopedists were hired in Stavropol region, which is 1,9% of all signed contracts under this program and 9,2% of all hired within this time trauma orthopedists.
    Conclusion. We revealed significant disproportion of health resourcing in health service centres in the subject of the Russian Federation, which limits traumatologic-orthopedic care accessibility. Despite “Zemsky doctor” program being implemented, the strong deficiency of trauma orthopedists still exists, whereas its efficiency decrease the number of licenses for institutional traumatologic-orthopaedical care in rural areas.

    Abstract. Currently, a restructuring of the psychiatric service is carried out in Moscow. The changes are implemented accordingto the concept of socially-oriented psychiatry based on a biopsychosocial approach. Reforms include the reductionof inpatient and the development of an outpatient unit of the psychiatric service. Psychiatric hospitals were merged with outpatient units on a territorial basis.
    The aim of the study was a comprehensive analysis of the psychiatric service functioning in Moscow during the period of
    its restructuring.
    A retrospective analysis of the demographic characteristics of the Moscow population and clinical and epidemiological
    indicators characterizing the incidence of mental disorders, as well as an analysis of the functioning of inpatient and
    outpatient units of the Moscow psychiatric service and its staff, was made. The evaluation of the conversion efficiency
    indicators was made. A sociological survey about the reforms (questionnaire) of specialists and relatives of persons with mental disorders being carried out through questionnaires was also conducted.
    During the transformation of the psychiatric service, the incidence of mental disorders, hospital mortality and the number of cases of disability decreased. The provision of the population with places in day hospitals, the number of places in day hospitals and patients who received assistance in day hospitals, the staffing level of outpatient rates, and the number of visits to district psychiatrists increased. The share of persons involuntarily examined and recognized as in need of inpatient treatment increased from 70% to 100%. According to a sociological survey, most of the heads of structural units of the psychiatric service, psychiatrists, and users of the service positively assess the reforms that have been carried out.
    For a large city, the cluster-modular system of psychiatric service, currently organized in Moscow, is a priority.
    Results of this work have found application in the organization of psychiatric care in Moscow, Vladimir, and Tula regions
    and the city of Sevastopol, and can be put into practice in other major cities of the Russian Federation.
