Abstract: First paragraph: Heart failure is a major killer, affecting well over a million people in the UK alone. We now have over 20 years' worth of evidence from clinical trials that show strong benefits for a package of treatment involving not only drugs and devices but also where patients stay, how they are cared for and how the different healthcare professionals work with one another. Yet in many cases, doctors are not acting on the findings.  Access this article on The Conversation website: https://theconversation.com/billions-are-spent-on-clinical-research-that-gets-ignored-heres-the-answer-60596
