International Use of GSF

Welcome

The GSF Centre team have for over fifteen years helped generalist frontline staff in the UK care better for all people in the final years of life, enabling them to live well until they die. GSF programmes have been extensively used in the UK in all settings, endorsed by national policy and mainstreamed within many sectors. Many thousands of doctors, nurses and carers have received training, affecting the care of several million people over the years, ensuring they are more likely to live well and die well in the place and the manner of their choosing.

Some GSF programmes and tools have been used by others internationally, or adapted for local needs, but most of the programmes and tools require support and guidance from our teams in UK to ensure most effective speedy implementation. Some individual tools available on the website have been poorly used, with sub-optimal and ineffective results. So we wish to work more closely with partner organisations to maximise effectiveness whilst also maintaining the integrity of the work, building on our years of experience in the UK. This includes localising and adapting our existing materials to the country’s needs, and help them achieve their goals of better quality end of life care more quickly and sustainably.

This section of the website allows people taking part in specific projects to access information eg Scotland, Wales and Belgium, through the links below. It also gives information about the worldwide use of the Gold Standards Framework. Not all areas are mentioned. For many the work is in early developmental stages. Please do not hesitate to contact the team for further information or to discuss how we can help you to achieve excellence in end of life care. We are always keen to hear examples of good practice and to share suggestions about how to meet your challenges.

Policy on non-UK use of the Gold Standards Framework

The GSF has been licensed for use within the NHS in the UK. Anyone enquiring from outside the UK should contact us by emailing info@gsfcentre.co.uk
