The purpose of this article is to reflect on the importance of education and patient involvement in the prescribing process in diabetes management. This article presents a case study of a patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus referred to the diabetes specialist nursing service due to long-standing poor glycaemic management and reflects on clinical inertia and medicines optimisation. Using a case study from clinical practice, insights and recommendations can be made. This process enables knowledge transferability to be applied in diabetes consultations, affecting medicines optimisation and resistance of clinical inertia in the management of type 2 diabetes. Clinicians must strive to ensure patient involvement in the prescribing process. This case study supports the importance of conducting patient-centred medication reviews that support the patient use their medicines. The importance of education regarding the treatments prescribed should not be underestimated and can impact on treatment concordance.
