Pediatric Learning Solution's new Augmented Reality PIV job aid brings a how-to video off the page and onto learners' smartphones. Simply print it out, hold a QR code scanner up to the paper and watch. Use this in a classroom setting or as a review before practicing on a manikin in a skills lab. On the floor, this could be used as a quick refresher for a new grad or for an experienced nurse just starting in pediatrics to get a confidence boost before her first stick on the unit. All hospitals participating in the Pediatric Acute Care Library are provided access to this tool.
