Abstract. Significance. Over the past 20 years the number of endoscopic examinations in the regions of the Russian Federation increased by 3-4 times due to current demographic situation. This lead to the increased share of the elderly ages that are more affected by different cancers and other chronic diseases. Diagnostics of such diseases requires obligatory endoscopic examinations resulting in a pressing need for higher number of well trained endoscopists.

The study purpose is to analyze main statistical indicators of availability of endoscopists to the Russian population.

Methods and data. The authors used indicators of availability of endoscopists to the population, endoscopistsĺ staffing level and double jobholding ratio in 2013-2015 calculated based on data from the reporting statistical Form #30.

Results. Growing rates of availability of endoscopists exceeding the average Russiaĺs value were registered in 37 (2013), 36 (2014) and 47 (2015) Russian regions due to the increased need for higher number of endoscopic examinations.

However, high values of double jobholding ratio registered at the same regions suggest that the growing need for endoscopic examinations is currently being solved rather by the growing load on existing staff than by increasing number of endoscopists in health care facilities.

Currently, the majority of the Russian regions register high staffing levels of endoscopists in health care facilities; half of the regions report a 90% staffing while 18 regions levels almost hit 100%. However, combination of high values of this indicator with high values of double jobholding ratio suggests a deficit in endoscopistsĺ staffing. Currently insufficient number of endoscopists makes it impossible to widely use complicated diagnostics and treatment methods aimed at health protection and strengthening.

Keywords: endoscopist; availability of endoscopists to the population; staffing levels of endoscopists; double jobholding ratio.
