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. There is no sugarcoating it, we are in an education crisis for anaesthesia nurses. Never have graduate supervision periods been shorter, and never have educators been this under-resourced. 

Over the past two years, I've worked with ANZCA, ASA, ACN and ACPAN to develop an endorsed curriculum that is accessible, reliable and achievable for anaesthetic nurses. 

We work with individuals, educators and institutions to provide the most up-to-date curriculum in peri-anaesthesia nursing. 

Build knowledge, improve safety.

Hi, I'm Andrew Goyen

Head of Operations, Partnerships and Marketing at Periop Concepts

Andy has experience across Perioperative Nursing, is Head of Marketing and Strategy at Periop Concepts.

Andy completed his Bachelor of Nursing in 2016 at the University of Tasmania, and holds a Graduate Certificate in Perioperative Nursing. Andy spent 5 years working in operating theatres as a scrub nurse and anaesthetic assistant before progressing to the role of Perioperative Services ANUM at Royal Hobart Hospital.

In 2022, Andy was chosen for the role of Clinical Nurse Specialist for the emerging THS Statewide Trauma Service. This role involved oversight and liaison between multiple specialties for trauma patients from admission to discharge.

Andy brings to Periop Concepts a vision for expanding our reach to individuals and institutions who seek to build knowledge in perioperative nursing.


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!
