The Gold Standards Framework - Domiciliary Care Training Program

GSF Centre
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

Domiciliary Care Training Programme

The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Domiciliary Care Training Programme, takes a ‘Train the Trainers’ approach to the implementation of GSF in Domiciliary Care Agencies.  It is recognised that domiciliary carers are vital to the provision of end of life care provided to people in their own homes, helping them remain in their preferred place of care. 

This programme is divided into three stages, and is implemented over a 6-9 month period.

Stage 1 - Preparation Phase

1-2 trainers from your agency attend 3 facilitated ‘Train the Trainers’ workshops and will receive information, tools and techniques to lay the foundations for implementation, including a local audit of current activity, staff confidence survey, and an organisational survey to establish the local baseline.

Stage 2

A structured six step training programme which is delivered locally by your trainer, who is supported by the national GSF team via a number of prepared resources, regular conference calls and e-mail support.

Stage 3

The trainer attends a 3rd facilitated workshop where information and tools for post programme evaluation of the individual carer is undertaken, to assess the level of changes in staff confidence and knowledge in end of life care, leading to accreditation for the carer.

The GSF Domiciliary Care programme will support your organisation in the achievement of a range of targets and quality markers. These will be demonstrated through the use of evidence based tools, including the Supportive Care Analysis (SCA) audit tool, surveys of staff confidence and changes in organisational culture, all of which form an integral part of stages 1 & 3 of the programme.

The Domiciliary Care programme fits with other Gold Standards Framework training programmes to enable domiciliary carers to understand, more specifically, end of life care and how they are an integral part of the complete care package required by people at the end of life.
