Abstract: Chronic Kidney disease (CKD) is over-represented amongst First Nation people with more than triple the rate of CKD in those aged 15 years and over. The impact of colonisation, including harmful experiences of health practices and research, has contributed to these health inequities. Cape York Kidney Care (CYKC) has been created as an unique service which provides specialist care that aims to centre the client within a multidisciplinary team that is integrated within the primary care setting of the remote health clinics in six communities in western Cape York, Australia. This research aims to describe the Cape York Kidney Care service delivery model, and baseline service data, including aggregated client health measures.
