This KUDOS presentation goes to Susan M. Kruse, Nurse Case Manager in Internal Medicine-Oncology/Hematology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Sue has been positioned in this role for 18 months and during this time she has demonstrated great skill and determination. Her dedication to patient education and the success of her transplant team is exemplary. Susan’s first endeavor was to develop a time-saving informational video for patients and their families concerning peripheral stem cell transplantation. This video presents the same knowledge that previously took hours for volunteers to present. While Sue’s office was in transition between staffs, she was one of only two team members working in the department. She filled in while her department continued seeing established patients without missing a step.
