Summary Health services that aim to prevent and manage chronic kidney disease (CKD) in rural and remote Aboriginal communities in Australia, including the Goldfields region of Western Australia (WA), require innovative approaches. Nursing roles can significantly improve access to renal services in rural and remote areas as they are able to address a range of renal health promotion and prevention activities, and provide renal clinical education and support to Aboriginal people. The Goldfields Kidney Disease Nursing Management Program (GKDNMP), funded through the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) National Partnership Agreements, was developed to provide a comprehensive approach to primary health care that incorporates a range of health promotion and disease management activities. In the first year, the program increased home dialysis rates and decreased patient travel due to expanded access to renal care within the region. Context-specific health programs generated in response to local needs can be successful in addressing specific health care challenges in rural and remote health.
