This thesis provides insight into palliative care knowledge and support including end-of -life wishes from the perspective of Kimberley Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with end stage kidney disease. It is hoped that the findings of this study will inform future service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with end stage kidney disease in the Kimberley and beyond.
