Gold Standard Framework (GSF)

Heart of Kent Hospice is an approved Regional Training Centre for Gold Standards Framework (GSF) training programme. This programme is for care homes, domiciliary care agencies and retirement villages.

The programme starts in September 2020 and includes four full day workshops with ongoing support from Heart of Kent Hospice through to accreditation. The workshops are held remotely via Zoom.

It aims to achieve:

  • better quality of care experienced by all people nearing the end of life
  • better communication and co-ordination, systems, and teamwork
  • better outcomes for people living well and dying well where they choose
  • better outcomes for health systems, better use of limited resources and reducing length of hospital stays.

Understandably there have been some changes to the way we run the Gold Standard Framework training programme because of the coronavirus pandemic.

To discuss these changes or for more information about the programme, dates and how to book, please contact Jackie Pritchard, Head of Education and Development, Heart of Kent Hospice 01622 792200 ext 217 jackie.pritchard@hokh.co.uk or Geraldine Guiver, Practice Development Nurse on 01622 792200 ext 216 geraldine.guiver@hokh.co.uk
