Science and Criminalistics

Forensic science is the application of science to law. In criminal justice, this concept is applied to criminal cases but it also may apply to civil cases that do not have a criminal justice interest. The beginning of forensic science started in the late 1800s, with scientists and criminalists such as Galton, Bertillion, Gross, Locard, Vucetich, Goddard, and Lattes.

Research the following points, and write a 4–6-page paper fully explaining each point:

  • Explain the concept of forensic science and its meaning in the criminal justice system.
  • What is anthropometry, and why did it fall short of its intended process?
  • What area of forensic science is Sir Francis Galton noted for advancing?
  • Why is Dr. Edmond Locard known as the Sherlock Holmes of France?
  • In 1903, a case of mistaken identity between Will West and William West in the Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas resulted in a switch from one method of inmate identification to a method that is still used today. What was it, and why did the switch occur?

Criminal Investigations

In a 1,000–1,200-word essay, examine the elements of why sexual assault is very difficult for law enforcement to investigate, and discuss some potential mechanisms that you would put in place to help lessen the trauma for victims. Provide at least 2 references to substantiate your claims.

  • Visit the university library, and research sexual assault.
  • Address why sexual assault cases are a challenge to law enforcement.
  • Describe ways in which rape shield laws are sometimes used to discredit a victim.
  • Cite your sources via APA.

Benign prostatic  hyperplasia and male lower urinary symptoms

     LW  has a few factors that may affect her fertility and can potentially  cause delays in her getting pregnant. LW is obese and has PCOS which is a  known potential cause of infertility. I would advise the patient to  start making lifestyle changes in order to increase her fertility and  increase the chances of her getting pregnant. I would advise the patient  to start taking folic acid supplements, attend pre-pregnancy  preparation classes, and to begin exercising regularly (Melo et al.,  2015). The fact that the patient is taking metformin may benefit the  patient. This is because it will lower her glucose levels and may  actually induce ovulation (Melo et al., 2015). Diet modifications and  exercise can aid in weight loss and lower glucose levels as well as  cholesterol levels (Melo et al., 2015). If the diet and exercise was  successful and the patient’s cholesterol was improved, I would  discontinue the rosuvastatin as this drug can be harmful to the unborn  child (Lundberg & Mehta, 2018). I think that this suggestion would  be best for the patient because with the proper lifestyle modifications  the patient can lower her glucose and cholesterol levels, potentially  lose weight, and have more success conceiving.

Benign  prostatic hyperplasia is a prostate adenoma that causes some degree of  obstruction to the bladder and patients may or may not experience  symptoms (Vasanwala et al., 2017). In this scenario, I would check the  patient’s blood pressure as the terazosin could cause a drop in blood  pressure that could lead to lightheadedness and dizziness (Kim et al.,  2016). Terazosin is a nonselective alpha blocker and can have many side  effects such as syncope, dizziness, muscle weakness, fatigue, and nasal  congestion (Kim et al., 2016). The symptoms that GD is complaining of  seem to be common side effects of terazosin. The fact that the patient’s  lower urinary tract symptoms are unimproved would lead me to ask the  patient if he would like to try an alternative medication to improve his  symptoms and avoid the side effects. I would suggest trying a different  class of medication such as a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor (Kim et al.,  2016). I believe that this would be the best suggestion because this  medication is a different class and may provide the patient with more  relief from his symptoms and have less side effects.

Discuss effective communication to avoid  repetition of responsibilities.

Advanced  practice nursing gives nurses the opportunity to serve the patient  population in an expanded role. The professionals can use various models  of care to perform this role.  The model that is most appropriate to my  advanced nursing role is the collaborative practice model. (Norful et  al., 2019).  It entails sharing tasks with another equally qualified  medical practitioner to ensure that those patients receive quality care  that suits their diverse needs. The collaborative practice model is an  ideal strategy for optimizing the advanced practice role in a clinical  setting because it ensures that the limited resources available in the  healthcare organization are used constructively (Wei et al.,  2020).   Subsequently, it increases access to care because it ensures  that clinical tasks are shared between two qualified personnel.

This  technique is effective because it reduces the duration that patients  have to wait before being attended to. Subsequently, it is the available  workload in the clinical setting shared between two professionals hence  reducing the chances of the professionals experiencing burn out.  Exposing healthcare professionals to burnouts is detrimental because it  increases the chances of their making errors that cause deterioration of  patients hence increasing the medical costs that they incur. Therefore,  the collaborative practice model is an effective model that ensures  positive outcomes in the treatment process (Norful et al., 2019). It is  supported by outlining the roles that each of the professionals plays in  the clinical setting and the effective communication to avoid  repetition of responsibilities.

In  conclusion, the practice model that is essential to my advanced  practice nursing role is the collaborative model. Through model, I can  use my optimize skills and competencies by sharing tasks with another  equally qualified professional to ensure that patients receive quality  care that suits their distinctive needs.
