Child Hospice Care Outreach

If you or your colleagues help care for the family of a child who has a life-threatening illness, ask the Mariposa Program team at UNM Children’s Hospital for guidance. Count on us to provide:

  • Education for doctors, nurses, hospices and home health agencies
  • Case coordination and discharge planning
  • Case management
  • A 24-hour toll-free hotline for consultation at 866-869-7243
  • Direct patient care for families within a 60-mile radius of Albuquerque
  • Information on steps primary care providers can take to help palliative and hospice care patients

Educational Presentations

Invite our team to make an educational presentation to your group of health care providers. You’ll learn from case studies that cover pain and symptom management, psychosocial and spiritual care, and bereavement support. For more information, call 505-272-6700 or 866-869-7243 or email Alice Johnson.
