Ngayubah Gadan means "coming together" in the Yidinji language. The Minjil Indigenous cultural group in Gimuy (Cairns) have given their permission to use these words as the name for the Consensus Statement.
The Ngayubah Gadan Consensus Statement describes the meaning of the term Rural and Remote Multidisciplinary Health Team (RRMHT) and the system enablers that allow these teams to be sustained and function to deliver high-quality health care to rural and remote communities.
The Ngayubah Gadan Consensus Statement is a unified call from rural and remote health stakeholders to support, fund and enable Rural and Remote Multidisciplinary Health Teams to deliver high quality care to the communities they serve.
The statement is a key reference document for governments, policy makers and fund holders, workforce planners, training, service and peak organisations, health professionals and workers, and communities, when addressing rural and remote health workforce, training and service needs.
