What is the RCGP and Marie Curie Daffodil Standards?

The Daffodil Standards are a blend of quality statements, evidence-based tools, reflective learning exercises and quality improvement steps.

The Standards offer a structure, enabling practices to be proactive organisations in which continuous learning and quality improvement steps are an integral part of caring for people affected by Advanced Serious Illness and End of Life Care.

The Daffodil Standards can be accessed for free at: www.rcgp.org.uk/daffodilstandards
