Nurses who wish to apply evidence to practice must be able to ask questions about clinical problems in a format that allows those questions to be answered with evidence. This article contains a discussion of the nature of the foreground clinical question in evidence-based practice (EBP) and instructions for constructing such questions. The benefits of this format for locating and evaluating evidence are explained.
