Abstract
Objective: To analyze the application of virtual reality (VR) technology to increase midwives' skills in installing intrauterine device (IUD).
Methodology: This study was carried out at West Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia from 1st August to 31st August 2020. Demographic profile was recorded including age and length of work. It included 60 midwives, divided into two groups; 30 intervention groups were trained to insert IUD with VR and 30 control groups attended conventional training using lecture and demonstration methods. A pre-test was carried out, given birth planning material, then in the VR group, they were given IUD training using VR with a duration of 15 minutes per participant. Then the skills of the two groups were measured using a check list and compared. The statistical test was carried out by using an unpaired t test.
Result: Mean age of midwives in two groups not much different (p=0.74). There was no difference in the average length of work in two groups (p=0.87). After training, intervention group (133.87) had an average that is greater than the average after training the intervention group (131.97) (p=0.000).
Conclusion: Virtual reality can increase midwives skills.

Key words: Virtual reality, training, IUD, midwives.
