I am quite familiar with what happens in US and here. Main thing is to have a trusted doctor. One issue that people seem to be afraid of is pain relief medications will make them addicted. Yes, I know but people do not always think that through. The other is NO extraordinary measures. This has to be clarified. A person with say lung cancer is terminal but a tumor is pressing on some area of the body causing excruciating pain. I would op for the removal of what is causing the pain and not consider it extra ordinary. I would call it pain control. I have written up my own advanced directives and tried to be very explicit.
