We describe a novel hospital-based outpatient dengue management clinic that is sustainable both during and outside epidemic periods. Pre-defined selection criteria based on demographic, clinical and laboratory prognostic factors were applied. In the first five months, this predominantly nurse-operated, protocol-based clinic enrolled 118 adults, or 35% of patients who would have ordinarily received inpatient care. This resulted in 207 bed-days saved without adverse events. © 2008 Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.||Source Title:||Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/26719||ISSN:||00359203||DOI:||10.1016/j.trstmh.2008.07.007|
