    I guess the question is why isn’t there more use of in home dialysis/satellite dialysis centres in remote Indigenous communities? Seems the obvious solution (as well as treating the cause of all this CKD…diabetes). Why aren’t there more trained and accredited Aboriginal diabetes educators in these communities?

    As for the art, I don’t think mocking the rich and powerful (i.e those that are most likely to provide you with resources to achieve your outcomes) is really the way to go here.

    Scott,
    This is precisely what Aboriginal health organisations have been pushing for over many years (home dialysis etc), and in many cases paying for such facilities through sales of art, mining royalties etc. Specialist renal nurses available in some areas appear to be slowing the advance to CKD but not available everywhere despite obvious cost savings to the health system overall.
