Medical professionals and DNR

Here's an article which makes strong claims that end of life care is so painful and ineffective that the vast majority of medical professionals refuse it in favor of dying quietly at home or at a hospice.

I've seen the article cited in a couple of places and seen questions about whether the claim is true-- there's just anecdotes in the article.

So, any medical professionals care to say what your decisions are on the subject? What do you know about other medical professionals and their choices? What country are you living in?

I'm interested in comments from people who aren't medical professionals, too, just let me know whether you are or not.

I think I only have a modest number of medical professionals who are likely to comment, so if you pick up this question on your blog, please let me know.
