Margaret Raptis

Our Pills Talk Pty Ltd

Margaret Raptis is a pharmacist with a keen interest in effective communication and counselling between the pharmacist and the patient. Effective communication should ensure that the consumer has a thorough understanding of how to take their medication appropriately thereby reducing the risk of medication-related errors. As a child of migrants, Margaret is particularly interested in what happens to those who are from a culturally and linguistically diverse background when they are instructed in a language that is not their preferred language. 

Margaret graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Pharmacy in 1993 and from the University of NSW with a Bachelor of Arts in media and communication in 2001. She has been an accredited medication review pharmacist since 2002 and a partner at Queen Street Pharmacy in Woollahra since 2007.
