Caitlin Buchell is a Speech Language Pathologist working in  Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. She works with individuals with neurological disorders at the end of life to maximize their quality of life and ensure that they're able to communicate. Caitlin also works in palliative care and is the consulting speech language pathologist with the Manitoba Medical Assistance in Dying team.
