|Improving care for all people near the end of life provided by frontline generalist staff in any setting.|
The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is a systematic evidence based approach to optimising the care for patients nearing the end of life delivered by generalist providers. It is concerned with helping people to live well until the end of life and includes care in the final years of life for people with any end stage illness in any setting.
The National GSF Centre CIC is the national training and coordinating centre for all programmes, enabling generalist frontline staff to provide quality care for people nearing the end of life, whatever their illness, wherever the setting. It aims to support best implementation of GSF in all settings, using a common framework and toolkit of resources.
GSF improves the quality, coordination and organisation of care in primary care, care homes and acute hospitals. This enables more patients to receive the type of care they want, in their preferred place, with greater cost efficiency through reduced hospitalisation.
