About Us

Hi, I'm Dr Jack Madden

Founder of Periop Concepts

I'm an anaesthetist from Tasmania, Australia with postgraduate training in clinical teaching. For years, I've watched nurses who are new to anaesthesia being thrown into the busy theatre environment only to be overwhelmed by all the new concepts. 

The demand for our attention is greater than ever. We all have too much to read, watch, scroll, click. If you don't know where to begin, you are not alone.

Periop Concepts was created to make it easier for nurses to grasp the core concepts essential to safe anaesthesia. 

Using evidence-based teaching techniques, we have created courses that let you learn quickly and easily, at your own pace, anywhere. 

With our courses, I hope you are able to Build Knowledge and Improve Safety.

What's different about this kind of teaching?



We have done the hard work in combining these ingredients.


That means you can spend less time learning and more time feeling competent and safe in the operating theatre!
