High quality of midwifery education has strong impacts on providing adequate services. Therefore, this study was done to compare the efficacy of web-based, simulation and conventional training on knowledge and skills retention of midwifery students in management of postpartum hemorrhage. Methods: This randomized three-group clinical trial was conducted on 54 midwifery students in school of Nursing and Midwifery of Mashhad, Iran in 2013. The students of web-based group were trained on-line for one week, the students of simulation group were trained for 4 hours in clinical skills centre and the students of conventional group were trained for 4 hours oral presentation. Before, one week and one month after the training, objective structured clinical examination and knowledge was taken. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 11.5, chi-square, ANOVA, Kruskal-Wallis and Friedman tests. P value less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results: Retention of knowledge and skills of midwifery students was significantly increased one week and one month after intervention in all three groups of web-based (p<0.001), simulation (p<0.001), conventional (p<0.001). Conclusions: Training increased the retention of knowledge and skills of midwifery students in management of postpartum hemorrhage. Skill retention in web-based group than other two groups, in teaching clinical skills. Therefore, web-based training method, which is low cost and more availability, can be used to increase the retention of knowledge and skills of midwifery students in management of postpartum hemorrhage.
