I am going on a medical mission to Haiti. What would be 20 important phrases for me to know?

It's kind of hard to predict the type of cases you are going to see, and what the patients' responses would be to the questions you might ask them.   Do you have a questionnaire with the types of questions you want to ask?  Is it a 'clinic' type of setting?
There's a Medical Dictionary that you might find online, English / Haitian Creole Medical Dictionary by Maude Heurtelou and Fequière Vilsaint, it's published by EDUCA VISION
There's also a free medical dictionary and other free resources on the Kansas University (Haitian Studies) website: http://languages.ku.edu/haitian; it touches on the subject of cultural sensitivity too.  So that might be helpful.
