Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

The Quest for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

As you read in the discussion introduction, civil liberties and civil rights are salient rights enshrined by the U.S. Constitution, subsequent congressional legislation, executive actions, and judicial decisions. Whereas many times civil liberties and civil rights are used interchangeably, the two terms are distinct.

Many civil liberties and civil rights are either directly written into the U.S. Constitution or later legislated by an Act of Congress. That said, many of America’s important civil liberties and civil rights are the result of Supreme Court decisions.

With this in mind, in the Unit 6 Assignment, you will write an essay analyzing the judicial intersection of civil rights and civil liberties.

Directions: Write a 400 word, APA-formatted expository essay that addresses the following:

  • Identify the distinction between civil liberties and civil rights.
  • Identify where civil liberties are addressed within the U.S. Constitution.
  • Identify where civil rights are addressed within the U.S. Constitution.
  • Select two Supreme Court cases from the Supreme Court Case List: one case that concerns civil liberties and one case that concerns civil rights.
  • For both selected Supreme Court cases:
    • Identify the historical circumstances of the Supreme Court Case.
      • Speculate as to why the Supreme Court justices decided to hear this case.
    • Explain the Supreme Court’s decision.
      • Explain how this Supreme Court case discussed the U.S. Constitution, subsequent federal and state laws, and/or lower court judicial decisions.
      • How did this Supreme Court case affect the legislative, executive, and/or judicial branches?
    • Evaluate the resulting impact of the Supreme Court case on U.S. society.
      • Do you agree or disagree with the Supreme Court decision?
    • Evaluate the resulting impact of the Supreme Court case on you.
      • Why did the Supreme Court case interest you?
      • How does this Supreme Court case affect you and society?

dull pain in both knees

A 15-year-old male reports dull pain in both knees. Sometimes one or both knees click, and the patient describes a catching sensation under the patella. In determining the causes of the knee pain, what additional history do you need? What categories can you use to differentiate knee pain? What are your specific differential diagnoses for knee pain? What physical examination will you perform? What anatomic structures are you assessing as part of the physical examination? What special maneuvers will you perform?

With regard to the case study you were assigned:

  • Consider what history would be necessary to collect from the patient in the case study you were assigned.
  • Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. How would the results be used to make a diagnosis?
  • Identify at least five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.

Note: Before you submit your initial post, replace the subject line (“Discussion – Week 8”) with “Review of Case Study ___.” Fill in the blank with the number of the case study you were assigned.

Post an episodic/focused note about the patient in the case study to which you were assigned using the episodic/focused note template provided in the Week 5 resources. Provide evidence from the literature to support diagnostic tests that would be appropriate for each case. List five different possible conditions for the patient’s differential diagnosis and justify why you selected each.

Gambling disorder, alcohol use disorder

BACKGROUND

Mrs. Maria Perez is a 53 year old Puerto Rican female who presents to your office today due to a rather “embarrassing problem.”

SUBJECTIVE

Mrs. Perez admits that she has had “problems” with alcohol since her father died in her late teens. She reports that she has struggled with alcohol since her 20’s and has been involved with Alcoholics Anonymous “on and off” for the past 25 years. She states that for the past two years, she has been having more and more difficulty maintaining her sobriety since they opened the new “Rising Sun” casino near her home. Mrs. Perez states that she and a friend went to visit the new casino during their grand opening at which point she was “hooked.” She states that she gets “such a high” when she is gambling. While gambling, she “enjoys a drink or two” to help calm her during high-stakes games. She states that this often gives way to more drinking and more reckless gambling. She also reports that her cigarette smoking has increased over the past two years and she is concerned about the negative effects of the cigarette smoking on her health.

She states that she attempts to abstain from drinking but that she gets such a “high” from the act of gambling that she needs a few drinks to “even out.” She also notices that when she drinks, she doesn’t smoke “as much” but enjoys smoking when she is playing at the slot machines. She also reports that she has gained weight from drinking so much- she currently weights 122 lbs., which represents a 7 lb. weight gain from her usual 115 lb. weight.

Mrs. Perez is quite concerned today because she has borrowed over $50,000 from her retirement account to pay off her gambling debts. She is very concerned because her husband does not know that she has spent this much money.

Intimate Partner Violence

Overview: In reading your assigned textbook chapters and select articles, and reviewing the CDC website link   CDC: Intimate Partner Violence //www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/intimatepartnerviolence/index.html

on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), you will have looked at both ends of the spectrum – from disparity to privilege—and at triggers, which are not bound by any social class, leading to intimate partner violence. Consider the following:

1. Does trauma-informed care apply to IPV? Why or why not?

2. Review the maternal and infant mortality statistics within our country and your state. Do you note any disparity?

3. How can “privilege” become a beacon for change?

4. Intimate partner violence expresses a need for power and control by many methods. Would you recognize them all?

5. Is there a path that most violent individuals follow?

Reflect on the content presented and submit a one- to two-page journal (this does not include the title or reference pages) providing an example of how you have been witness to IPV, disparity, and or privilege and outline how you, as an APRN, can recognize and reduce violence and health disparity in women.
