Barriers to adoption of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists in patients with heart failure: A mixed-methods study.
Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) are the most underutilized pharmacotherapy for heart failure. This study sought to ascertain barriers to optimal use of MRAs. It identified eight primary barriers to MRA adoption at the provider, patient, and health system levels from the prescriber perspective. These barriers can inform the creation of multilevel interventions that will be required to close the gap in MRA adoption.
