“The ‘terminal condition’ is basically if you are at the end of your life, and the doctor has diagnosed you with a particular condition, usually cancer, and says, ‘You have X number of months to live,’ and it’s very definite that your life is at the end. In that situation, you have to make a decision. Do you want to be resuscitated during that time? Do you want artificial hydration and nutrition to be options for your decision-maker to withdraw? That’s basically Part I of a living will.”
